Reducible iron affects organic matter oxidation and ammonium production in wetland soils and sediments uri icon

abstract

  • Due to lack of oxygen, nitrogen mineralization process in submerged soils and sediments (including oceans) halts atammonium production; and nitrification is at a low ebb1. Ammonium production is the key process for meeting the nitrogen requirements of wetland flora and fauna and controls the primary productivity of submerged soils and aquatic sediments
