Measurements of dissolved gasses (nitrous oxide, methane, and carbon dioxide) over the salinity gradient in eight estuaries (Noosa, Maroochy, Mooloolah, Caboolture, Pine, Brisbane, Logan/Albert, Nerang). Gas measurements are complemented by continius measurements of water chemistry parameters (temperature, salinity, pH) and periodic measurements of water nutrient content (total P, PO43-, total N, NH4+, DON, NO3-, total organic C, total inorganic C) and weather conditions (air temperature, wind speed, barometric pressure).
