We studied microbial N(2) production via anammox and denitrification in the anoxic water column of a restored mining pit lake in Germany over an annual cycle. We obtained high-resolution hydrochemical profiles using a continuous pumping sampler. Lake Rassnitzer is permanently stratified at ca. 29m depth, entraining anoxic water below a saline density gradient. Mixed-layer nitrate concentrations averaged ca. 200 micromol L(-1), but decreased to zero in the anoxic bottom waters. In contrast… CONTINUE READING
