Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) is an important pathway for trace element and nutrient cycling in the coastal ocean. I use a combination of hydrological and geochemical tracer observations to gain insights into the natural and anthropogenic mechanisms driving SGD into coastal water bodies. Nutrient measurements in a subterranean estuary (STE) were used to discuss the biogeochemical controls of SGD endmember concentrations and to derive inputs associated with fresh and saline SGD.Tallahassee FSUCML Water Intake ~1.6m Water Level Meter 10 min Weather Station Wind Rain 5 min Pump ...
