From page 113...
... Significant biogeochemical processing of carbon happens in inland waters; there are significant data gaps that impede a more complete understanding of transformations under different physical, chemical, and biological conditions as well as a result of anthropogenic disturbance, both direct and indirect. There are additional key messages about the potential impact of impoundments on carbon biogeochemistry, which are mainly to change the flow paths of carbon as well as the rates of CO2 and CH4 cycling.
From page 114...
... at the North Temperate Lakes LTER site are unable to yield consistent pCO2 estimates, nor are these estimates consistent with co-located direct pCO2 observations. The freshwater community needs to follow the approach of marine scientists in developing best practice laboratory techniques and inter-calibrated standards.

... Also, recovery from acid rain should increase pH, and hence decrease pCO2? Page 577, Line 16 Add reference to McKinley et al.
