Anoxic degradation of sedimentary biogenic debris using closed incubation experiments was studied at two sampling stations in the Gulf of Trieste (northern Adriatic). Production rates of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), NH4+, PO(4)3- and dissolved Si (dSi), and reduction rates of SO(4)2- were measured and anoxic mineralization rates were modeled using a first order G-model and multi-G approach. The depth profiles of these rates revealed an exponential decrease indicating that the largest… CONTINUE READING
