A variety of empirical and calculated data from the largest tank at the New Jersey State Aquarium were used to quantify the fluxes of carbon and nitrogen before and after the installation of denitrification in this facility. Before denitrification, the stock of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) in Ocean Tank exhibited a decrease of 6.9 kg C/month and sodium bicarbonate had to be added to maintain DIC in steady state. We were able to explain the DIC decrease by two non-conservative processes: the… CONTINUE READING
