Summary

These present data on sediment carbon within submerged aquatic vegetation beds from fresh to saline coastal locations in Barataria Bay, Louisiana. Water quality, site location, vegetation biomass and species composition are presented. This project was co-funded by the South Central Climate Adaptation Science Center and the Gulf Coast Prairie Landscape Conservation Cooperative and Gulf Coastal Plains and Ozarks LCC.

Purpose

The data were collected in 2015 and 2016 in order to examine carbon stocks within submerged aquatic vegetation across the salinity gradient (from fresh to saline). An appropriate use would be for comparisons with other coastal habitats examining carbon stocks.
