Bacterial growth and the chemical composition of dissolved organic matter (DOM) were followed during a 10ߚd decomposition experiment with fresh, algalߚ;derived DOM from an Arctic ice floe. During the experiment ~30% of the dissolved organic carbon (DOC) was used by bacteria, indicating the highly reactive nature of this fresh DOM. Over half of the DOC consumption was accounted for as losses of combined neutral sugars and amino acids. The initial composition of the DOM was characterized by high… CONTINUE READING
