Imbalanced stoichiometric reservoir sedimentation regulates methane accumulation in China’s Three Gorges Reservoir

Abstract The river‐reservoir continuum drives a separation of sedimentation along the longitudinal hydrodynamic gradients, potentially causing imbalanced stoichiometric sedimentation. However, there are still uncertainties regarding the contribution of imbalanced stoichiometric sedimentation to methane emissions along this continuum. A two‐year field survey and in situ experiments were conducted in China’s Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR), a river‐valley […]
