Regulation of carbon dioxide and methane in small agricultural reservoirs: optimizing potential for greenhouse gas uptake

Jackie R. Webb et al.

Data sets

Farm dam carbon dioxide and methane data J. Webb and G. Simpson

Short summary
Small farm reservoirs are key features within agricultural landscapes, yet these waterbodies can contribute substantial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere. This study assessed some of the environmental factors that may impact the production of these GHGs. We found promise that farm reservoirs can act as net greenhouse gas sinks and identified some of the key water quality, landscape, and design features that may support GHG mitigation.
