Abstract The paper describes the use of bacterial carbon pools and bacterial dynamics in studies of estuarine carbon cycling. The authors suggest that field data from such studies, which include all the carbon pools, coupled with modelling efforts can be used to study the extent of eutrophication in estuarine systems. Carbon isotope data on bacterial carbon sources are described for several estuaries. Authors present a model that predicts the relative importance of respiration and atmospheric exchange on the isotope ratio of DIC in an estuary.
