N cycling in the world’s oceans:  N cycling in the world’s oceans Nitrogen:  Nitrogen N is an essential nutrient for all living organisms (nucleic acids and amino acids) N has many oxidation states, which makes speciation and redox chemistry very interesting NH4+ is preferred N nutrient Marine N:  Marine N Non-bioavailable N2O 200 Tg N (+1) N2 2.2*107 Tg N (0) Bioavailable/Fixed (oxidation state) NO3- 5.7*105 Tg N (+5) NO2- 500 Tg N (+3) NH4+ 7.0*103 Tg N (-3) Organic N 5.3*105 Tg N (-3) Libes, 1992 Marine Fixed N Budget:  Marine Reservoir: 6.3*105 Tg N Sources: 287 Tg N/yr Sinks: 482 Tg N/yr Water Column denitrification: 150 Tg N/yr Atmospheric deposition: 86 Tg N/yr N2O loss: 6 Tg N/yr N2 fixation: 125 Tg N/yr Sedimentation: 25 Tg N/yr Benthic denitrification: 300 Tg N/yr Organic N export: 1 Tg N/yr River Input: 76 Tg N/yr Codispoti et al. (2001) Marine Fixed N Budget Slide5:  NO3 Chlorophyll Large detritus Organic matter N2 NH4 NO3 Water column Sediment Phytoplankton NH4 Mineralization Uptake Nitrification Nitrification Grazing Mortality Zooplankton Susp. particles Aerobic mineralization Denitrification N2 Fixation Nitrogen Cycle:  Nitrogen Cycle http://www.petsforum.com/personal/trevor-jones/nitrogencycle.gif Organic Matter Oxidation Sequence Morel & Herring, 1993:  Respiration ΔG° (kJ/mol) -119 Denitrification -113 MnO2 reduction -96.9 Fe oxide reduction -46.7 Sulfate reduction -20.5 Methanogenesis -17.7 Organic Matter Oxidation Sequence Morel & Herring, 1993 Alternative pathways to N2:  Alternative pathways to N2 Nitrification Anammox OLAND MnO2 Reduction Microbially mediated Chemical Reactions Heterotrophic Denitrification Nitrogen Fixation Mn2+ Oxidation Marine Fixed N Budget Unbalanced WHY??????????????????????:  N Fixation may have been underestimated Limited data on Trichodesmium and other N fixers; variability in abundances and fixation rates of organisms Recent estimates of N fixation rates have increased (Gruber and Sarmiento, 1997; Karl et al., 1997) Denitrification may have been overestimated Stoichiometric and model-based estimates used; limited data on direct denitrification measurements Marine Fixed N Budget Unbalanced WHY?????????????????????? My research:  My research Denitrification describes the removal of fixed N, mostly NO3-, resulting in the formation of non-biologically available N, primarily N2 gas Continental shelf sediments are responsible for up to 67% of marine denitrification estimates Sandy sediments comprise 70% of continental shelves; global estimates of denitrification are mostly based on muddy sediments Sands contain less organic matter and nutrients, and high oxygen concentrations in overlying water Benthic primary production (BPP):  Sandy sediments have low organic matter content, substrate for heterotrophic denitrification BPP supplies reactive organic matter through remineralization Organisms compete with microbes for nutrients such as NH4+ Organisms also produce oxygen during photosynthesis Role of BPP remains unclear Benthic primary production (BPP) Isotope tracer experiments:  Isotope tracer experiments Possible outcomes of amendment experiments. 1A = Aerobic nitrification of 15NH4+; 1B = Heterotrophic denitrification with 14NO3- and/or 15NO3-; 1C = OLAND with 15NH4+ or partial nitrate reduction to nitrite followed by anammox with 15NH4+; 1D = Same as 1C except with standard nitrate; 1E = Heterotrophic denitrification with standard nitrate; 1F = Assimilation. 2A = Aerobic nitrification of standard ammonium; 2B = Heterotrophic denitrification with 14NO3- and/or 15NO3-; 2C = OLAND with standard ammonium or partial nitrate reduction to nitrite followed by anammox with standard ammonium; 2D = Same as 2C except with 15NO3-; 2E = Heterotrophic denitrification of 15NO3-; 1F = Assimilation Sampling:  Sampling Sampling Membrane Inlet Mass Spec. (MIMS):  Membrane Inlet Mass Spec. (MIMS) Results:  W27 and Experiment 2 results suggest the presence of denitrification Experiment 1 results suggest that within the 48-hr timescale of the experiment, no alternative pathway to N2 exists in these sediments Results Denitrification Rates:  Denitrification Rates W27 Experiment provided a rate of 21.6 µmole N m-2 d-1 R4-Experiment 2 provided rates of 22.8 & 23.2 µmole N m-2 d-1 Rates obtained from other continental shelf studies of denitrification yielded 700-3200 µmole N m-2 d-1 Other continental shelf sites studied contain higher organic matter content than Georgia sediments Georgia continental shelf sediments are oxic to at least 1-cm depth, thus inhibiting higher rates of denitrification Discussion of results:  Discussion of results Sandy, continental shelf sediments are potentially important sites of denitrification that may have been overlooked These environments may have similar rates to current study site and if so, similar techniques can be used to measure such low rates of denitrification Denitrification was not completely inhibited by low organic matter content or benthic primary production BPP varies seasonally and spatially, yet denitrification rates were very close between two different stations during different seasons Future work:  Future work Impact of BPP can be explored further by monitoring nutrient and dissolved O2 concentrations and benthic primary production rates (monitored by SABSOON) Compare rates to Gulf of Mexico shelf denitrification rates (Nov. – Dec. 2004) Further explore the presence of alternative pathways in salt marsh sediments by using isotope tracers, 15N isotopic analyses, and HgCl2 (Oct. – Nov. 2004) Future work (cont’d):  Future work (cont’d)
