Determination of total destruction of organic matter in sediments of water bodies

  • A. N. Dzyuban
Methods of Investigations


A new scheme for determining the destruction of organic matter in bottom sediments with an account of methanogenesis and the dark assimilation of CO2 is suggested. The values of the total destruction calculated according to the new methodical scheme increases by 30–60%.
