The hydrochemical characteristics, the composition of species and the localization of bacterial species involved in oxidation of sulfide and ferrous salts were studied in the meromictic Lake Kuznechikha with a low sulfate content in summer and in winter. The rate of bacterial sulfate reduction and the rates of bacterial and algal photosynthesis were determined using a radioisotope technique. The meromictic nature of the lake is due to the accumulation of ferrous salts (up to 212 mg/l Fe2+) in… Expand
