PhD Scholarship – Nitrogen cycling in vegetated coastal systems

N2O is a potent greenhouse gas with marine sources estimated to contribute about 30% of natural global load. However, the contribution from the coastal zone, in particular seagrass and mangrove systems, is poorly constrained. High rates of nitrification and denitrification occur in tropical seagrass and mangrove sediments driven by heterotrophic respiration (see Eyre et al., 2011. Biogeochemistry 102, 111-133).
