Abstract En aquest estudi, s’han quantificat els fluxos de carboni en diferents basses temporals de l’illa de Menorca. Les basses s’han comportat com a emissores de diòxid de carboni (CO2) cap a l’atmosfera durant totes les fases del cicle hidrològic, amb fluxos de CO2 comparables als de sistemes lacustres no temporals, si bé els fluxos de metà són de menor importància. Destaca l’important paper de la fase seca d’aquests sistemes com a emissora de CO2. Les seccions no inundades de les basses han mostrat una elevada activitat de processament de carboni, emetent CO2 a intensitats significativament superiors a les observades des de la columna d’aigua.

In this study, we evaluated the carbon fluxes in a set of temporary ponds in the island of Menorca. The ponds were net emitters of carbon dioxide (CO2) towards the atmosphere during the different phases of their hydrologic cycles. The measured CO2 fluxes were comparable to those from non-temporary lacustrine
systems, although methane presented lower values. We stress the relevant role of the dry phase of these systems as a net CO2 emitter. The non-flooded sections of the ponds showed a strong carbon processing activity, emitting CO2 at significantly higher intensity than the water column.
