Description
Examination of amino acids in particulate samples from a variety of marine environments (fresh phytoplankton to deep-sea sediments) revealed systematic compositional changes upon progressive degradation..These consistent trends have been used to derive a quantitative degradationindex (DI) that is directly related to the reactivity of the organic material, as indicated by its lability to enzymatic decay and its firstorder degradation rate constant.

Scope
Themes:
Biology > Organic (& bio-) chemistry

Parameter
Particulate organic matter (POM)
