Denitrification rate was determined for various freshwater wetland types in the Mississippi River Coastal delta plain. Site 1 and 4 were collected from forested-tupelo dominated wetland, and site 2 and 3 were from floating emergent marsh. The maximum emission was for site 1 at day 6 after the addition of nitrate, for site 2 at day 4, for site 3 at day 3, and for site 4 at day 4. The denitrification rate was determined using the acetylene inhibition method for site 1, for site 2, for site 3, and for site 4. The maximum denitrification rate was in the order of site 4 > site 3 > site 2 > site 1.
