Short summary
This study quantified, for the first time, simultaneous rates of carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) from a Mediterranean riparian forest. Our results showed a strong linkage between riparian hydrology, soil microbial processes, and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. High CO2 effluxes occurred all year long, while N2O emissions were generally low and confined to saturated soils. Overall, this study shows that riparian soils can be hotspots of GHG emissions within Mediterranean catchment.
