The Effect of a Temperature Rise on the Sulfate Reducing Rates in Cold Marine Sediments of Kongsfjorden (Svalbard, Arctic Ocean)

Introduction Temperature rise globally are likely to increase the rate of organic matter decomposition resulting in substantial CO2 release. The marine carbon cycle in Arctic regions currently occupies a prominent role in the study of climate warming effects as there is evidence from observational and modelling studies for strong seasonal temperature increases in northern high-latitude environments (Serreze et al. 2000). Further, biogeochemical processes react very sensitively to temperature changes (Denman et al. 2007; Anisimov et al. 2007). Since more than...
