- ... Effects of long term Hg contamination and addition of Hg²⁺ on soil CH₄ oxidation were investigated in laboratory incubation experiments. Non‐contaminated soils had CH₄ oxidation rate constants (k) between 5.2 and 24.5×10⁻³h⁻¹, whereas Hg contaminated soils had rates ranging from 2.4 to 8.0×10⁻³h⁻¹. Specific oxidation rates (qK=k/Cbᵢₒ), normalized with respect to soil microbial biomass C (Cbᵢₒ), al ...
