Abstract

Studies on the fluxes of greenhouse gases in mangrove ecosystems especially during tides are relatively scarce. The research was conducted in Tallo River Makassar which is a mangrove ecosystem habitat. Gas sampling was done by utilising size 0,5x0,5x1 m3 chamber through a syringe during the tidal periods. Gas analysis was done using gas chromatography methods. The research shows that the flux of CO2 gasduring high tide was 204,84 mg m-2 hr-1 or 1,79 kg m-2 year-1  and 183,81 mg m-2 hr-1 or 1,61 kg m-2 year-1 during low tide, while the flux of CH4 gaswas 0,75 mg m-2 hr-1 or 0,007 kg m-2 year-1  during high tide and 0,62 mg m-2 hr-1 or 0,005 kg m-2 year-1 during low tide, and the flux of N2O gaswas 0,141 mg m-2 hr-1 or 0,0012 kg m-2 year-1  during high tide and 0,145 mg m-2 hr-1 or 0,0013 kg m-2 year-1  during low tide.
