Linking Sediment Biofilms, Hydrodynamics, and River Bed Clogging: Evidence from a Large River

  title={Linking Sediment Biofilms, Hydrodynamics, and River Bed Clogging: Evidence from a Large River},
  author={Tom J. Battin and D. Sengschmitt},
  journal={Microbial Ecology},
We investigated possible effects of the hydrodynamics at the water/sediment interface on river bed biofilms within the reservoir Freudenau (Vienna, Austria) of the Danube River during the period 1996/97. Two study sites (OBB and SSF) that differed in the magnitude of surface/subsurface water exchange were selected and intersite comparisons revealed higher organic matter, bacterial cell numbers, and esterase activity in SSF with lower horizontal outflow. Concentrations of colloidal… CONTINUE READING
