Forty-two samples taken from two landfills were monitored for CH(inf4) production and apparent steady-state H(inf2) concentration. The rates of methanogenesis in these samples ranged from below the detection limit to 1,900 (mu)mol kg (dry weight)(sup-1) day(sup-1), and the median steady-state hydrogen concentration was 1.4 (mu)M in one landfill and 5.2 (mu)M in the other. To further investigate the relationship between hydrogen concentration and methanogenesis, a subset of seven landfill… CONTINUE READING
