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,

Terrestrial C sequestration at elevated CO2 and temperature : the role of dissolved organic N loss Rastetter, Edward B.; Perakis, Steven S.; Shaver, Gaius R.; Agren, Goran I. (2004-06-07)We used a simple model of carbon–nitrogen (C–N) interactions in terrestrial ecosystems to examine the responses to elevated CO2 and to elevated CO2 plus warming in ecosystems that had the same total nitrogen loss but that ...
Nitrogen interception and export by experimental salt marsh plots exposed to chronic nutrient addition Brin, Lindsay D.; Valiela, Ivan; Goehringer, Dale; Howes, Brian L. (Inter-Research, 2010-02-11)Mass balance studies conducted in the 1970s in Great Sippewissett Salt Marsh, New England, showed that fertilized plots intercepted 60 to 80% of the nitrogen (N) applied at several treatment levels every year from April ...
Ecological constraints on planktonic nitrogen fixation in saline estuaries. I. Nutrient and trophic controls Marino, Roxanne; Chan, Francis; Howarth, Robert W.; Pace, Michael L.; Likens, Gene E. (Inter-Research, 2006-03-15)Heterocystous, planktonic cyanobacteria capable of fixing atmospheric N2 into available nitrogen (N) are common and critically important to nutrient cycling in many lakes, yet they are rarely observed in estuaries at ...
