Understanding the influence of Annamox and denitrification in agricultural drainage ditch sediments in potential nitrogen removal

Robert Kröger, BK Song

This project aims to discern the differences, and individual contributions of ANNAMOX and denitrification for nitrogen removal. Denitrification is a common nitrogen removal process that is often cited as the main driver for nitrogen loss in aquatic systems. Anaerobic ammonium oxidation (ANNAMOX) is a dominant nitrogen loss pathway in marine systems, but very little is known about its occurrence and/or abundance of associated bacteria in terrestrial systems. This project will look at understanding the contribution of ANNAMOX in agricultural drainage ditch sediments to potential nitrogen removal.
