The oxidation of ammonia (NH3) and methane (CH4) was investigated in an alkaline saline lake, Mono Lake, California (U.S.A.). Ammonia oxidation was examined in April and July 1995 by comparing dark CO2 fixation rates in the presence or absence of methyl fluoride (MeF), an inhibitor of NH3 oxidation. Ammonia oxidizermediated dark CO2 fixation rates were similar in surface (5–7 m) and oxycline (11–15 m) waters, ranging between 70–340 and 89–186 nM d21, respectively, or 1–7% of primary production… CONTINUE READING
