Characterization of subsurface methane production and release over 3 years at a New Hampshire wetland

  title={Characterization of subsurface methane production and release over 3 years at a New Hampshire wetland},
  author={Julie K. Shoemaker and Ruth K. Varner and Daniel P. Schrag},
We explore 3 years of pore water profile data from a New Hampshire wetland to determine the rates of methane production and oxidation occurring in the water-saturated peat, and how these rates evolve over seasonal and annual timescales. For this study, pore water was collected and analyzed for the isotopic composition of the dissolved inorganic carbon and the concentrations of carbon dioxide and methane. These data are used, in conjunction with a 1-D model that simulates reaction and transport… CONTINUE READING
