The distribution of nitrogen isotopes in sediments. By S.O. Scholten. Abstract. The results from this thesis elucidate some of the major processes involved in the sedimentary nitrogen distribution, although much research on the sedimentary nitrogen cycle still needs to be done.

Geol., The concentrations and isotopic compositions of the various forms of nitrogen in silty clay sediments from the Bay of Quinte (Lake Ontario) have been by: Carbon and nitrogen contents and their isotopic components, and AMS (Accelerator Mass Spectrometry) radiocarbon dating ages, were measured for 57 coastal sediments from Weizhou Island to analyze the distribution of total inorganic carbon (TIC) and its carbon and oxygen isotopic components (δ13Ccarb and δ18Ocarb), total organic carbon (TOC) and total nitrogen (TN) contents and their stable.

Carbon and nitrogen contents and their isotopic components, and AMS (Accelerator Mass Spectrometry) radiocarbon dating ages, were measured for 57 coastal sediments from Weizhou Island to analyze the distribution of total inorganic carbon (TIC) and its carbon and oxygen isotopic components (δ13Ccarb and δ18Ocarb), total organic carbon (TOC) and total nitrogen (TN) contents.

The nitrogen stable isotope of surface soils is modeled across the landscape and was chosen due to (i) its ability to reflect land management changes across the landscape, (ii) the lack of understanding regarding its distribution at the watershed scale, and (iii) its recent successful use within sediment tracer technologies and anticipated.

This study investigated the distribution and roles of total organic carbon (TOC), biogenic silicon (BSi), various forms of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P), and the stable carbon isotope (δ 13 C) in surface sediments of the Yangtze River Estuary (YRE) and adjacent sea. Terrestrial input accounted for 12–63% of total organic matter in the study area.

Publisher Summary. This chapter provides an overview to the current knowledge on the oceanic distribution and pathways of nitric oxide (NO), nitrous oxide (N 2 O), dinitrogen (N 2), and ammonia (NH 3), which has increased considerably since the publication of “Gaseous nitrogen compounds in the sea.”These compounds play important roles in the chemistry and climate of the present-day Earth.

Total organic carbon (TOC), total nitrogen (TN) and their δ 13 C and δ 15 N values were determined from sediment samples from the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) continental shelf, northern Andaman Sea to decipher the concentration and source of organic matter. Comparatively higher TOC and TN concentrations are found in the inner-shelf mud belt, and on the continental slope sediments.

The uplift of rocks above sea level on the Earth’s surface over geological time, produces rock material that can be altered into soils and sediments by weathering processes. Over geological time, a fraction of sediments can be sequestered for storage in the ocean basins—with most of it stored in the coastal margin.

However, much of this material is modified via processing in large river. Summary. A new method for accurate and easy measurement of denitrification in sediments is presented. The water overlying intact sediment cores was enriched with 15 NO 3 − which mixed with the 14 NO 3 − of the natural sources of NO 3 −.The formation by denitrification of single-labeled (14 N 15 N) and double-labeled (15 N 15 N) dinitrogen pairs was measured by mass spectrometry after a.

Outputs indicated are sedimentary and water column denitrification. The nitrogen stable isotope ratio (δ 15 N) is an effective tool for studying the nitrogen (N) cycle in aquatic systems.

δ 15 N is also used as a tracer for detecting the distribution of pollutants and the amplification of biological effects on pollutants.

[1] The sources and distribution of organic matter (OM) in surface sediments of the eastern continental margin of India, including the region influenced by river discharge, were investigated using content, molar C:N ratios and stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen.

Despite relatively high water column integrated chlorophyll‐a concentrations were found in the continental shelf than the slope. For the nitrogen isotope analysis, the sample NO 3 − was chemically converted to N 2 O. 10 ml aliquots of the samples were decanted into clean 10 ml vials, and g of spongy cadmium and 20 μl of a 1 M NaHCO 3 buffer (pH ) were added at the NO 3 − to NO 2 − reduction step.

The samples were then shaken for 20 hours on a horizontal. In this river, sediment pH ranged from to The concentrations of sediment ammonium nitrogen varied from to mg kg −1 and were obviously higher than nitrite and nitrate.

Sediments of XFN and GZN exhibited significantly lower concentrations of nitrogen (p.INTRODUCTION. Microbial sulfate reduction (MSR) is a process of anaerobic respiration that utilizes sulfate as an electron acceptor.

This process remineralizes organic carbon in anoxic marine sediments and is the main driver of the global biogeochemical cycle of sulfur (8, 13).Of the four stable isotopes of sulfur in nature (32 S, 33 S, 34 S, and 36 S), MSR preferentially utilizes lighter S.Nitrogen fixation was examined in three different microbial niches within the cave waters: (1) symbiotic bacterial community of Niphargus amphipods, (2) Beggiatoa-dominated biofilms, which occur at the sulfide–oxygen interface, and (3) sulfidic sediment.

We found evidence for nitrogen fixation in all the three niches, and the nitrogenase gene.
