  • Dataset Abstract
    As part of the larger NSF WSC funded project, an SF6 tracer study was conducted in November of 2010 by working groups form ENP, FIU and Univ. of Hawaii. This work included the release of the tracer (SF6), which was sampled in a lagrangian approach as the tracer “patch” moved from the fresh water portion of the system to the mangrove ecotone along the Shark and Harney Rivers. The goal of this study was to measure carbon export through the system. Annie Palya used our new CRDS system to measure the isotopic composition (d13C) of the DOM & DIC (analyzed at RSMAS) during this study, as carbon isotopes may help to resolve different sources of carbon. This analytical approach is relatively new, and will be important for understanding the C-dynamics within the FCE.
