Benthic metabolism in a natural coastal petroleum seep
The rates of 3 processes known to be mediated by microbial metabolic activity were measured in the sediments of a shallow-water (18 m depth) natural petroleum seep and a nearby non- seep area near Santa Barbara, California. ...
Vertical distribution of microbial and meiofaunal populations in sediments of a natural coastal hydrocarbon seep
(Yale Peabody Museum, 1989)
We studied the vertical distribution of microbes and meiofauna in natural hydrocarbon seep sediments to determine if there was a relationship between profiles of benthic trophic structure and the unique biogeochemical ...
Temporal variability and the relationship between benthic meiofaunal and microbial populations of a natural coastal petroleum seep
(Yale Peabody Museum, 1987)
Previous studies of the Isla Vista petroleum seep in the Santa Barbara Channel found much higher abundances of macrofauna and concentrations of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in sediments near petroleum seepage compared to ...
