TitleMicrobial processes in iron-rich sediments of Lake Towuti, Indonesia: Disentangling the methane and iron cycles
Study TypeOther
Abstract Lake Towuti is a ferruginous basin with anoxic conditions below 130 m water depth. Due to these special settings, the lake is ideal to study early diagenesis in iron-rich sediments such as those that generated ancient iron formations during the Archean and Proterozoic. We investigated microbial popu .. [more]
