Intertidal creeks play an important role in transporting nutrients between coastal ecosystems and ocean. Reclamation is a predominant anthropogenic disturbance in coastal regions; however, the influence of reclamation on carbon and nitrogen species and greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes in creek remains unclear. In a subtropical salt marsh of eastern China, the seasonal patterns of dissolved carbon (DOC, DIC, CO, and CH) and inorganic nitrogen (NH-N, NO-N, and NO-N and NO) species, and the diffusive fluxes of CO, CH, and NO, were compared between the natural tidal creeks and the reclaimed creeks.
