dissimilatory iron reduction (DIR)

Iron and carbon isotope constraints on the formation pathway of iron-rich carbonates within the Dagushan Iron Formation, North China Craton

Banded iron formations (BIFs) are enigmatic chemical sedimentary rocks that chronicle the geochemical and microbial cycling of iron and carbon in the Precambrian. However, the formation pathways of Fe carbonate, namely siderite, remain disputed. …
