A new paper co-written by four University of Montana researchers finds that humans have more than doubled tropical nitrogen inputs.

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
2013-11-05 07:55:09

A team of scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, the University of Basel, and Radboud University Nijmegen has now revealed the details of an important microbial process regulating the global nitrogen budget in the oceans.

El Nino Nitrous Oxide Global Warming
2013-09-27 12:13:09

New research as found that the Pacific Ocean weather patterns known as El Niño and La Niña have a significant effect on nitrous oxide emissions and global warming.

Wobble Of The Earth Rings The Ocean Dinner Bell For Tiny Ocean Creatures
2013-09-14 04:18:52

The nutrient known as “fixed” nitrogen, which is essential to the health of the ocean, is controlled by the cyclic wobble of the Earth on its axis.

Rising Temperatures Could Upset Natural Ocean Cycles
2013-09-09 04:15:09

Rising water temperatures will have an adverse impact on plankton, serving as the catalyst for a series of events that will upset the balance of essential oceanic chemical cycles.

2013-08-08 14:02:31

In a discovery that further demonstrates just how unexpected and unusual nature can be, scientists have found two strains of bacteria whose symbiotic relationship is unlike anything seen before.

Homes Of Giant Bacteria Invaded By Strangers
