Benthic nutrient flux in a shallow coastal environment


Ammonia and nitrate efflux from a fine sand in Carmarthen Bay was studied by incubating undisturbed cores of sediment on board ship. At the end of each incubation, the macrofaunal and bacterial biomass in each core and the organic content of the sediment were determined. Oxygen consumption was measured in another series of cores. The relationship between… (More)
