Quantitative assessment of carbon sequestration by sapropel deposits inferred from Lakes Peschanoe and Nizhnee (Western Siberia, Russia)
Keywords:sapropel, small lakes, Baraba lowland, Novosibirsk region, carbon, carbon sequestration
Comprehensive studies of chemical and mineral composition of two lake systems on the territory of the Baraba lowland in the south of western Siberia was carried out. The reserves of sapropel and carbon were calculated for each lake. Sources supply of material and forms of carbon burial in the bottom sediments were identified.
