This is the first time that alkane based organicmarkers have been used to distinguish betweendifferent lake types. This study also provides thefirst description of the organic geochemical characterof the surface sediments of Taihu Basin. Taihu Lake is one of the largest freshwater lakes inChina. Its east basin supports a dense population ofvascular plants (sediment C/N =13.8) while the westbasin is nearly free of vascular plants and supports ahigh phytoplankton (predominantly cyanobacteria… CONTINUE READING
