Fate of Allochthonous Dissolved Organic Carbon in Lakes: A Quantitative Approach

  title={Fate of Allochthonous Dissolved Organic Carbon in Lakes: A Quantitative Approach},
  author={Paul C. Hanson and David P. Hamilton and Emily H. Stanley and Nicholas J Preston and Owen C. Langman and Emily L. Kara},
  booktitle={PloS one},
Inputs of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to lakes derived from the surrounding landscape can be stored, mineralized or passed to downstream ecosystems. The balance among these OC fates depends on a suite of physical, chemical, and biological processes within the lake, as well as the degree of recalcintrance of the allochthonous DOC load. The relative importance of these processes has not been well quantified due to the complex nature of lakes, as well as challenges in scaling DOC degradation… CONTINUE READING
