Oxygen Consumption from Natural Waters by Photo-Oxidizing Processes

In filter-sterilized samples of a Dutch lake, the North Sea and in unfiltered samples of the tropical Atlantic Ocean, 5 to 40% of the oxygen produced by photosynthetically active organisms has been found to be fixed through photochemical reactions. Oxygen budget calculations should make allowances for the oxygen consumption involved in these processes, even though they are confined to the surface layer of natural waters.
