The overall C:N:P stoichiometric composition of organic matter undergoing decomposition during sulfate reduction in anoxic sediments cannot be correctly deduced from pore water chemistry unless corrections for differential diffusion and adsorption are made. This paper presents a method for making these corrections, based on steady state diagenetic modeling of pore water data and estimates of diffusion coefficients, adsorption constants, and rates of sedimentation. For a sediment site in Long… CONTINUE READING
