Summary
Abstract: The data set contains the sample ID, depth (cm), sediment size, fine sediment fraction (<60m), total C %, organic C %, total N %, total P %, C/N, C/P, and N/P.

This project is examining (1) sources of nutrients, sulfur, and carbon to wetlands of south Florida, (2) the important role of chemical and biological processes to the wetland sediments (biogeochemical processes) in the cycling of these ... View entire text
