We studied the response of methane production and oxidation potentials in a minerotrophic and an ombrotrophic mire to water table ̄uctuations. In pro®les where water table had not varied, the water-saturated layers showed signi®cant potentials while the unsaturated layers did not. The production potentials in the saturated layers below water level ranged from 0.1 to 2.4 mg CH4 h ÿ1 (g d.w.)ÿ 1 and oxidation potentials (®rst order reaction rate constants) between ÿ0.010 and ÿ0.120 hÿ1 (g d.w… CONTINUE READING
