Abstract

In situ sediment oxygen demand rate determinations were performed on the freshwater Passaic River system during the late summer/early fall of 1983. Values obtained ranged from non-detectable to 2.43 g m-2 day-1. The values obtained were compared with values obtained historically from similar locations. The dependency of the SOD rate on temperature was observed in consonance with the observations of other investigators performing laboratory experiments.
