Nutrient contents, microbial biomass and microbial activities werestudied at the air–water interface in the surface microlayer (SM) andsubsurface waters (10 cm depth) in small boreal forest lakes. Two differentsampling techniques were used to evaluate differences in the nutrientcomposition in SM- and subsurface waters and to study their effects onmicrobial biomass and activities of neustonic and planktonic microbialcommunities. Inorganic nutrients were only slightly enriched in the SMcompared… CONTINUE READING
