Summary
Abstract: This project is examining (1) sources of nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus), sulfur, and carbon to wetlands of south Florida, (2) the important role of chemical and biological processes in the wetland sediments (biogeochemical processes) in the cycling of these elements, and (3) the ultimate fate (i.e. sinks) of these elements in the ecosystem. The focus on nutrients and carbon reflects the ... View entire text
