Description

This dataset contains total carbon, total nitrogen, and total phosphorus content of aboveground biomass (AGB) and necromass (AGN) samples collected from herbaceous wetlands in the Atchafalaya and Terrebonne basins in southeastern coastal Louisiana in 2021. Field measurements were conducted at six sites in the Atchafalaya (N=1) and Terrebonne (N=5) basins. Five of the sites are adjacent to sites from the Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS). The other site is in the Wax Lake Delta (WLD) without appropriate adjacent CRMS sites. All AGB and AGN plant material within each plot was clipped at soil level, stored in plastic bags, and transported to the laboratory for further analyses. Herbaceous wetland sites in both basins were chosen to represent a salinity gradient including freshwater, brackish, and saline ecosystems. Samples collected were for the Delta-X campaign conducted from 2021-03-19 to 2021-04-02 (spring) and 2021-08-19 to 2021-08-27 (fall).
