The peroxydisulfate anion strategy for the remediation of PAH-contaminated soils has attracted widespread interest, despite its negative effects on soil microbial activity as a result of oxidative(More)
We investigated whether algal osmotrophy in naturally acidic Lake Caviahue is an important process for acquisition of organic carbon and organic nitrogen. To accomplish this, we quantified algal assimilation of organic compounds, measured the specific growth rate and biomass yield, and documented incorporation of organic compounds by phytoplankton in situ(More)
