The influence of micro-algae on the oxygen dynamics in a brackish ditch

Abstract

Seasonal changes in the activity of phytoplankton and benthic algae in relation to diurnal oxygen pulses were investigated in a 120 cm deep, brackish hypertrophic ditch. A vertical chloride gradient was built up by saline seepage and drain-water effluent. The stable chloride gradient could lead to oxygen stratification near the sediment, and to oxygen… (More)
