||L. A. Codispoti, An oceanic fixed nitrogen sink exceeding 400 TgNa-1 vs the concept
of homeostasis in the fixed-nitrogen inventory, Biogeosciences, 4, 233–253, 2007
||Measurements of the N2 produced by denitrification,
a better understanding of non-canonical pathways for
N2 production such as the anammox reaction, better appreciation
of the multiple environments in which denitrification
can occur (e.g. brine pockets in ice, within particles outside
of suboxic water, etc.) suggest that it is unlikely that the
oceanic denitrification rate is less than 400 TgN a^-1.
||Image illustrates the reactions of the main nitrifying and denitrifying reactions. Please note: the nitrogen fixation reaction (N2>>NH4) is missing.
