Rhode Island Nitrogen Cycle Differs In Bay And Sound
2014-04-29 17:17:11

A new study reports that anammox, a key process in the nitrogen cycle, is barely present in Narragansett Bay even though it’s a major factor just a little farther out into Rhode Island Sound.

Study May Resolve Controversy Over Nitrogen’s Ocean Exit Strategies
2014-04-14 12:19:53

A decades-long debate over how nitrogen is removed from the ocean may now be settled by new findings from researchers at Princeton University and their collaborators at the University of Washington.

The Oceans Nitrogen Puzzle

By Pedros, P B Onnis-Hayden, A; Tyler, Charles ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to investigate the nitrification and nitrogen removal from centrate produced in the dewatering process of anaerobically digested sludge, using a single- unit, single-zone submerged attached-growth bioreactor.

By Dosta, J Gali, A; El-Hadj, T Benabdallah; Mata-Alvarez, J ABSTRACT: An efficient biological treatment to treat reject water from anaerobic digestion of wastewater sludge is the SHARON denitrification process, which takes place in a chemostat reactor, where aerobic/anoxic periods are alternated under specific hydraulic retention time (HRT) and temperature conditions that favor ammonium oxidizers growth and ensure the total washout of nitrite oxidizers, achieving the biological nitrogen...
