Nitrogen Cycling in Estuaries

The NICE project will study the fate of anthropogenic nitrogen discharged into estuaries and coastal waters. The removal of nitrogen in these waters will be quantified in order to evaluate to what extent nitrogen is being transported from land to the open seas. The importance of benthic primary producers, tidal amplitude and climate on nitrogen cycling will be investigated.
