EAR-Climate: Effects of nutrient pollution, temperature, discharge, urbanization, and groundwater inputs on CO2 and CH4 emissions from streams

John Ayers
We propose to measure daily and seasonal variations in stream chemistry and gas emissions across a gradient of nutrient pollution levels, discharge, and urban development in three streams in middle TN. We will test the following hypotheses: 1) emissions of CO2 are decreased and CH4 increased by nutrient pollution; 2) emissions of CO2 increase and CH4 increase faster with temperature; 3) gas emissions decrease with increased discharge/precipitation; 4) urbanization increases CO2 and CH4 emissions; and...
