Abstract

Fluxes of N2-N (denitrification), dissolved ammonium, nitrate plus nitrite, and dissolved oxygen were determined at teh 350 acre oyster restoration project at Harris Creek, Maryland. The ex situ incubation approach involved adding oyster communities to embedded trays for ~1 mo incubating the trays under dark and light conditions for 1-2 hour time courses for gas and solute sampling, adn determination of the rates of gas and solute exchange for 136 individual reef tray incubations. Reef exchange rates were compared to rates of sediment water exchange in core incubations throughout Harris Creek and in reef-adjacent environments.
