Submarine Groundwater Discharge (SGD) is now recognized as an important transport vector of nutrients to the coastal ocean. The role of benthic sandy ecosystems in mitigating SGD NO3- loads to coastal marine ecosystems is uncertain. I used a combination of in-situ sampling, experiments under controlled conditions and detenninistic modeling techniques in order to identify, quantify and parameterize key biogeochemical processes of N in permeable sediments hosting SGD and thus elucidate the mediation role of SGD seepage faces over N fluxes to the coastal ocean.
