原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Dinitrogen (N 2 ) production from denitrification and anaerobic ammonium oxidation represents a loss of reactive nitrogen (N) from terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems to the atmosphere. The large 15 N additions required to detect 15 N 2 production against the high atmospheric background precludes the use of the 15 N tracer technique in natural terrestrial ecosystems. We present an isotope ratio mass spectrometry technique that dramatically improves the precision of 15 N 2 measurements. The approach uses gas chromatography to remove oxygen and gas purification techniques to remove water vapor and trace gases that can interfere with 15 N 2 analysis. The analytical precision for manual gas sample injection was 0.018‰ δ 15 N; this translates to a minimum detectable N 2 flux of...
