Stable isotope tracers were added to exposed tidepools utilizing them as temporary mesocosms to quantify N transformation rates (Pather et al.,L&O). Large tracer signals were observed over the typical 4-5 hr experimental period in both the dilution of the isotope label in its added form (NH4+ or NO3-) and the appearance of the label in products (e.g. NO2-) The primary advantage was that all members of community participated in the experiment allowing us to recognize the complexity of nitrogen cycling in this system. A full dataset description is included in the supplemental file 'project-data-description.pdf'. Field names are included in the files, '*_params.csv'
Five datasets resulting from experiments on nitrogen regeneration in tidal pools, with and without mussls, and with two species of macroalgae,

Phosphate availability and the ultimate control of new nitrogen input by nitrogen fixation in the tropical Pacific Ocean Moutin, T.; Karl, David M.; Duhamel, Solange; Rimmelin, P.; Raimbault, P.; Van Mooy, Benjamin A. S.; Claustre, Hervé (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2008-01-29)Due to the low atmospheric input of phosphate into the open ocean, it is one of the key nutrients that could ultimately control primary production and carbon export into the deep ocean. The observed trend over the last 20 ...
Cole, Marci L.; Kroeger, Kevin D.; McClelland, James W.; Valiela, Ivan (2005-07-18)Eutrophication is a major agent of change affecting freshwater, estuarine, and marine systems. It is largely driven by transportation of nitrogen from natural and anthropogenic sources. Research is needed to quantify ...
Iron availability limits the ocean nitrogen inventory stabilizing feedbacks between marine denitrification and nitrogen fixation Moore, J. Keith; Doney, Scott C. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-04-04)Recent upward revisions in key sink/source terms for fixed nitrogen (N) in the oceans imply a short residence time and strong negative feedbacks involving denitrification and N fixation to prevent large swings in the ocean ...
