Tidal hydrologic and constitutent loads from First Mallard Water Quality Station in the Rush Ranch Marsh Complex of the San Francisco Bay Estuarine Research Reserve (SFBNERR) 2016-2018

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

The data herein report continuous field measurements and specific discrete sampling events associated with water quality and carbon consitutents – both dissolved and particulate forms. These data were coupled with atmospheric flux measurements during the 2017-18 water year to estimate the net storage of fixed carbon within the marsh on an areal basis. Direct and indirect measurement showed 47 to 59% of fixed carbon is stored on site, and most loss is through dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) export. Comparing this with other tidal wetlands in the U.S. showed similar rates of loss, and a global meta-analysis showed that lateral loss is a proportionally larger term in coastal wetland carbon budgets, relative to other terrestrial systems.
