Our project titled “Understanding the complex interaction of salinization and eutrophication on Green House Gas emissions of Anatolian inland waters” has been funded by METU. We will be compiling a basin-wide bottom up inventory of GHG flux from Anatolian saline lakes, and investigating complex relationship between biogenic GHG release, eutrophication and salinization, which involves positive- and negative- feedback loops and non-linear interactions. We are happy to collaborate with Meryem Beklioğlu @METU, Thomas Davidson and Joachim Audet @ Aarhus University (Denmark), and Pelin Ertürk Arı, Akif Arı and Nusret Karakaya @Abant Izzet Baysal University.

We carried out our first field study to test our GHG sampling strategy in April 16, in Akgöl, Göksu Estuary.
