  1. Numbers in parentheses stand for a percent of total analyzed sulfur. Thiosulfate concentrations were multiplied by a factor of two in order to calculate sulfur concentrations. Only cyanide-reactive zero-valent sulfur (and not chloroform-extractable sulfur) was taken into account in calculation of the sum of sulfur species concentration and total sulfur pool. The relative variation in the sum of the sulfur species is below 0.4%.
  2. In our calculations we defined sulfide (product) as A, and sulfate (reactant) as B.
