Abstract
    Carbon dioxide and methane emissions from estuaries are reviewed in relationwith biogeochemical processes and carbon cycling. In estuaries, carbondioxide and methane emissions show a large spatial and temporalvariability, which results from a complex interaction of river carbon inputs,sedimentation and resuspension processes, microbial processes in watersand sediments, tidal exchanges with marshes and flats and gas exchangewith the atmosphere. The net mineralization of land-derived organic carbonleads to high CO2 atmospheric emissions (10-1000 mmol.m-2.d-1 i.e.44-4400 mg.m-2.d-1) from inner estuarine waters and tidal flats and marshsediments. Estuarine plumes at sea are sites of intense primary productionand show large seasonal variations of pCO2 from undersaturation to oversaturation;on an annual basis, some plumes behave as net sinks of atmosphericCO2 and some others as net sources; CO2 atmospheric fluxes inplumes are usually one order of magnitude lower than in inner estuaries.Methane emissions to the atmosphere are moderate in estuaries (0.02-0.5 mmol.m-2.d-1 i.e. 0.32-8 mg.m-2.d-1), except in vegetated tidal flats andmarshes, particularly those at freshwater sites, where sediments may beCH4-saturated. CH4 emissions from subtidal estuarine waters are the resultof lateral inputs from river and marshes followed by physical ventilation,rather than intense in-situ production in the sediments, where oxic andsuboxic conditions dominate. Microbial oxidation significantly reduces theCH4 emissions at low salinity (<10) only.
