Resumen

Nine surface water surveys were performed in the Formoso estuary (Brazil) during 2012-2013 mainly in summer and winter periods and during spring tide. Temporal variations of temperature, salinity, phosphate, silicate, total alkalinity, dissolved inorganic carbon, partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2) and water-air CO2 fluxes were analyzed. Low rates of water-air CO2 fluxes (4.7 ± 8.0 mmol C m-2 d-1) were estimated despite the different climate conditions. pCO2 values ranged from 190 to 988 matm. These values are lower than those observed in other tropical estuaries. CO2 fluxes presented in this study contribute to the characterization of humid tropical estuarine systems, thus filling an important geographical information gap.
