This data set reports net methane (CH4) emissions from managed saline ponds and a restored salt marsh associated with the South Bay Salt Ponds Restoration Project, San Francisco Bay, CA, USA. Associated biogeochemical and physical data are also reported. Data were collected on five sampling dates over the course of the study: November 2016, January 2017, March 2017, June 2017 and August 2017. Logistics (e.g., weather and road conditions) and nesting birds did not allow us to sample all locations during all sampling events.
Methane emissions were measured using static chambers and biogeochemical data were measured on porewater associated with the static chambers. Data from one flux chamber (Pond A1; November 2016) were removed as an outlier because the measured emissions were more than 20-times higher than the average of other fluxes in the same pond during the same sampling event.
