The Gen-X has identified 5 main areas for targetted data collection and model development that will improve our understanding of coastal biogeochemical processes and the role of multiple anthropogenic stressors in regulating the redox network.  They include:

  1. Relative reaction rates for simultaneous redox processes

  2. Effects of global change stressors and external forcing on biogeochemical cycling and methane emissions

  3. Soil carbon quality, including chemical speciation and decay rates

  4. Plant-mediated transport of oxygen and methane

  5. Sediment heterogeneity driven by roots
