Summary

Denitrification measurements and ecosystem attributes in hummock-hollow microtopography of tidal freshwater forested wetlands along longitudinal riverine positions (upper, middle, and lower tidal river sites, and nearby upstream nontidal forested floodplains) of the adjoining Pamunkey and Mattaponi Rivers, Virginia.

Purpose

(1) to determine the effect of differences in river N concentrations on denitrification, making use of a natural experiment between two tributaries of the York River estuary in Virginia, (2) to determine the effect of longitudinal riverine-estuarine gradients on variations in denitrification, including nontidal forested floodplain wetlands upstream of tidal influence, (3) to determine if denitrification differs across hummock-hollow microtopography prevalent across tidal freshwater forested wetlands, and (4) to evaluate denitrification associations with other soil physicochemical properties (e.g., bulk density or potential carbon mineralization) along these tidal freshwater forested wetlands gradients.
