The aim of this study was to explore the potential of a combined chemical and microbiological approach as part of a study of organic carbon oxidation processes in sediments. An assessment of microbiological diversity using molecular techniques was carried out in combination with high resolution chemical measurements at the sediment-water interface of a coastal lagoon affected by eutrophication in autumn 2000. There was a 0.2 mm overlap between the O2 and H2S profiles. pH showed a maximum just… CONTINUE READING
