ResumenEstuaries are significant methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emitters, although dynamics of both greenhouse gases in these ecosystems are regulated by complex processes. In this work, we aimed at characterizing the spatio-temporal distribution of CH4 and N2O in the Guadalquivir river estuary (SW Spain), the southernmost European estuary. During eight sampling cruises conducted between 2016 and 2017, surface water CH4 and N2O concentrations were measured along the salinity gradient of the estuary by using static-head space equilibration gas chromatography. The CH4 and N2O saturation ranges over the estuarine transect were 520–30,800% (average 2285%) and 40–390% (average 183%), respectively and air–water fluxes ranged from 13 to 1000 µmol m− 2 day− 1(average 66.2 µmol m− 2 day− 1) for CH4 and from − 7 to 35 µmol m− 2 day− 1 (average 8.5 µmol m− 2 day− 1) for N2O. A slight increase in the emissions was detected upstream and no seasonal trends were observed. Mixing between freshwater and oceanic waters influenced biogeochemistry of estuarine waters, affecting CH4 and N2O fluxes. In order to identify potential sources of CH4 and N2O, biogeochemical parameters involved in the formation pathways of both gases, such as salinity, dissolved oxygen, nutrients and organic matter were analyzed. Results suggested that sulfate inhibition and microbial oxidation played a relevant role in dissolved CH4 accumulation in the water column whereas associations found between N2O, nitrate and oxygen indicated that nitrification was a major source of this gas. Therefore, the influence of the tidal-fluvial interaction on ecosystem metabolism regulates trace gas dynamics in the Guadalquivir estuary.
