Early Diagenesis And Chemical Mass Transfer In Lake Erie Sediments
Fisher, J. Berton
Vertical profiles of pore water and sediment solids chemistry were obtained from two sites in Lake Erie. Samples were collected using both gravity coring and pore water "peeper" techniques. In general, concentrations of nutrients and toxic metals in sediment solids decreased with increasing depth. Comparison of pore water "peeper data to gravity core data showed that "peeper" data provides higher resolution near the sediment-water interface. Modifications of the present peeper are required to adequately sample easily oxidizable materials (e.g. ammonia, ferrous iron).
