Abstract

Seasonal and annual variability of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbonyl sulfide (OCS), methane thiol (MeSH), dimethyl sulfide (DMS) and dimethyl disulfide (DMDS) concentrations and supporting parameters (e.g., phytoplanktonic cells abundance) were investigated in a coastal marine environment, the Bay of Quiberon (Brittany, France) from July 2004 to August 2006. The sampling was conducted in the water column, within two meters of the sediment water interface (SWI). Minimum and maximum values were <0.1-1.6 nmol L-1 for H2S, <0.1-4.2 nmol L-1 for OCS, <0.1-7.8 nmol L-1 for MeSH, <0.1-17.5 nmol L-1 for DMS and <0.1-1.7 nmol L-1 for DMDS. Vertical carbonyl sulfide distribution showed seasonal variations with lower concentration near the SWI in winter and bottom enrichments near sediments in summer. Vertical sulfide distribution not seems to be influenced by the shallow sediments. The likely influence of Dinophyceae abundance on the MeSH, DMS and DMDS concentrations was evident for the 3-summer monitored period.
