Iron and sulfate reduction in the sediments of acidic mine lake 116 (Branenburg, Germany): Rates and geochemical evaluation

Iron and sulfate reduction in the sediments of acidic mine lake 116 (Branenburg, Germany): Rates and geochemical evaluation

Water Air and Soil Pollution 108(3-4): 249-270

A combination of rate measurements of iron(III)oxide and sulfate reduction, thermodynamic data, and pore-water and solid phase analyses was used to evaluate the relative significance of iron and sulfate reduction in the sediments of an acidic strip mining lake, (Lake 116, Brandenburg, Germany). The rate of sulfate reduction was determined using a 35S-radiotracer method. Rates of iron turnover were quantified by mass balances based on pore-water concentration profiles.
