Potential prodution of greenhouse gases in sediments of marginal lagoons


This research project aims to describe and to discuss the carbon cycling in sediments of marginal lagoons. The temporal celulolitic activity and the productions of methane and of carbon dioxide will be investigated in different deeps of the sediments. Monthly, samples of sediments will be in the Ecological Station of Jataí (Luiz Antonio-SP); belonging to the Mogí-Guaçu river floodplain. At the first year, the samples will be taken in Óleo Lake. From the second year, the researches will be extended to the other marginal lagoons, aiming to estimate its annual gases productions. The deep of collected layers will be made considering the data obtained from the first year experiments. The investigated processes should contribute to the understanding of the metabolism of river-floodplain systems, besides supply relevant information in scope of greenhouse gases generation from those environments.
