Characteristics (biomass and activity) of biofilms affected by surface channel water or inflowing lateral source water were investigated on the Rhône River at two seasons (growing and dormant season), and in two contrasting hydrodynamic and trophic situations. Sources were characterized by slow water velocity, fine sediment particles, high total organic matter (TOM) (both dissolved and particulate estimated by ignition loss), whereas, in the channel, flow velocity was higher, granules were… CONTINUE READING
