Measurement of microbial oxidation of methane in lake water [pdf]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
A radiotracer method which measures rates of oxidation of mcthanc to cell material, extraccllular products, and carbon dioxide has been applied to two lakes and indicates that methane oxidation occurred in a narrow band where methane and oxygen occurred to- gethcr in the water column. Oxidation rates of 1.0 μM hr^-1 were recorded in a eutrophic lake; rates in a meromictic lake reached 0.15 μM hr^-1. Usually a third of the carbon from oxidized methanc was found in cell material and extraccllular products and the rest was converted to carbon dioxide. This ratio was observed to change at very low oxygen concentrations.
