Microbial nitrate-dependent Fe(II) oxidation is known to contribute to iron biogeochemical cycling; however,
the microorganisms responsible are virtually unknown. In an effort to elucidate this microbial metabolic
process in the context of an environmental system, a 14-cm sediment core was collected from a freshwater lake
and geochemically characterized concurrently with the enumeration of the nitrate-dependent Fe(II)-oxidizing
