Our study of Hinchinbrook Island is part of a large scale latitudinal project funded by the Australia Research Council.  Douglas Tate has found in one resulting paper Mangrove pore water exchange across a latitudinal gradient that porewater exchange is dramatically larger in mangroves than previously thought. Because biogeochemical processes in mangroves are largely dependent on pore water exchange, these large exchange rates have major implications for coastal nutrient, carbon, and greenhouse gas cycling in tropical marine systems.
