Consumption and production of atmospheric CO was measured under field conditions in three different types of soil. CO was consumed by an apparent first-order reaction and produced by an apparent zero-order reaction, resulting in a dynamic equilibrium with the consumption of atmospheric CO as the net reaction. CO consumption was higher in summer than in winter. Laboratory experiments on five different soil types showed that CO consumption was strongly inhibited by the presence of streptomycin or… CONTINUE READING
