The distributions of different forms of nitrogen in the surface sediments of the southern Huanghai Sea are different and affected by various factors. The contents of IEF-N, SOEF-N and TN gradually decrease eastward, and those of SAEF-N northward, while those of WAEF-N westward. Around the seaport of the old Huanghe (Yellow) River, the contents of both SOEF-N and TN are the highest. Among all the factors, the content of fine sediment is the predominant factor to affect the distributions of… Expand

Geochemical characteristics of nitrogen in the southern Yellow Sea surface sediments
Roles and distributions of various forms of nitrogen in biogeochemical cycling in the southern Yellow Sea surface sediments were investigated. The southern Yellow Sea could be divided into threeExpand
[Spatial Distributions of Transferable Nitrogen Forms and Influencing Factors in Sediments from Inflow Rivers in Different Lake Basins].
The results showed that the physicochemical properties of sediments from different watersheds varied in space, especially for organic matter and grain size, and the concentrations of total nitrogen and nitrogen fractions also showed obvious changes in river sediments. Expand
