CADIZ, 6B: Winogradsky column, fifth week

Hello,winobloggers:

It's been five weeks since this experiment began.

Since our last publication, it has produced following changes:
The part of the column that receives sunlight has reddish, greenish and black stains have decreased. The green color of the upper zone indicates the presence of cyanobacteria. The red color comes from purple non-sulfur bacteria. The black spots are due to the reaction of H2S released by bacteria with soil iron.

We can also see gas bubbles on the surface of the column. This may be because cyanobacteria have begun to do photosynthesis, using organic material as carbon source and expelling oxygen as a waste product.

In the part of the column that no receives sunlight have begun to disappear black regions due to cessation of the reactions of sulfur with soil iron.

Now, you can see some pictures of our column.
