Samples ( 1 and 5 liters) of filtered seawater (0.5 Jo) at its natural pH were equilibrated with several ,Gi of either carrier-free zinc-65 or carrier-free cobalt-60 and allowed to flow down individual resin columns. Retention of the ions was estimated by examining the eluate for activity; both cobalt and zinc were completely retained by the resin from both the 1 and 5 liter samples of seawater. 
Determination of NH4+ in Environmental Water with Interfering Substances Using the Modified Nessler Method
Nitrogen is an essential element in the environment. If excess nitrogen including is present in water, however, it can result in algae blooming and eventually the destruction of the aquaticExpand
New Procedure for Extraction of Ammonium from Natural Waters for 15N Isotopic Ratio Determinations
A new method for extracting ammonium from natural waters for N isotopic ratio determination shows accuracy and precision comparable to those of other methods described in the literature. Expand
Primary amines in California coastal waters: Utilization by phytoplankton1
A new reagent, fluorescamine, provides a simple, rapid fluorometric measurement of primary amino compounds in seawater. The reagent detects as little as 0.2 r.lM (glycine equivalents) directly in 2Expand
Release of ammonium and urea from dissolved organic nitrogen in aquatic ecosystems
The results of these experiments clearly indicate the potential in natural waters for degradation of DON pool constituents by indigenous bactena and free dssolved enzymes to NH,+ or urea; these in turn can be effectively exploited by the ambient microbiota. Expand
Ammonium Production in Sediments Inhibited with Molybdate: Implications for the Sources of Ammonium in Anoxic Marine Sediments
Investigation of ammonium production in the presence of specific inhibitors of sulfate reduction and methanogenesis in six marine sediments gives evidence that the processes of fermentation and hydrolysis are of primary importance in ammonium generation at the sites studied. Expand
Comparison of Methods for Inhibiting Bacterial Activity in Sediment
Dilute formaldehyde was the most suitable treatment to inhibit sediment bacteria, since bacterial activity remained low during long-term incubations and the chemical changes in the sediment wereExpand
Measurement of Nitrous Oxide Reductase Activity in Aquatic Sediments
Addition of chlorate to inhibit denitrification in intact-core experiments (to estimate gross rates of N(2)O consumption) resulted in approximately a 14% upward revision of estimates of net rates. Expand
Biogeochemistry of dissolved free amino acids in marine sediments
Abstract : Dissolved free amino acids (DFAA) were measured in interstitial water samples squeezed from sediments collected in a variety of depositional environments. These sediments were furtherExpand
Chemical and biological mobilization of Fe ( II 1 ) in marsh sediments
Iron reduction in marine sulfitic environments may occur via a mechanism involving direct bacterial reduction with the use of hydrogen as an electron donor, direct bacterial reduction involvingExpand
Urea and ureolytic activity in lakes of different trophic status.
A positive, statistically significant correlation between ureolytic activity and chlorophyll a (Chl(a))) concentrations suggests that phytoplankton may also be responsible for at least a some of the observed urelytic activity in the highly eutrophic Great Mazurian Lakes. Expand
