Row Type Variable Name Attribute Name Data Type Value
attribute NC_GLOBAL access_formats String .htmlTable,.csv,.json,.mat,.nc,.tsv
attribute NC_GLOBAL acquisition_description String We tested whether the mass-specific signal ratios returned by MIMS accurately
quantitate the relative isotopic abundance of 15N2 in the range typically used
for N2 fixation incubations. Incremental 15N2 gas aliquots were equilibrated
in seawater, and respective solutions were then dispensed into replicate gas-
tight vials. 15N atom % of dissolved N2 values were measured in parallel by
continuous flow IRMS on a GV Isoprime IRMS (Charoenpong et al., 2014) and by
MIMS (Bay Instruments), on the assumption that values returned by IRMS are

attribute NC_GLOBAL projects_0_description String NSF Award Abstract:
The availability of nitrogen is required to support the growth and production of organisms living in the surface of our global ocean. This element can be scarce. To alleviate this scarcity, a special class of bacteria and archaea, called nitrogen fixers, can derive the nitrogen needed for growth from nitrogen gas. This project would carefully examine one specific method for measuring nitrogen fixation that has been used recently to suggest the occurrence of small amounts of nitrogen fixation in subsurface ocean waters. If these reports are verified, then a revision of our understanding of the marine nitrogen cycle may be needed. The Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry program will be used as a platform to develop community consensus for best practices in nitrogen fixation measurements and detection of diversity, activity, and abundances of the organisms responsible. In addition, a session will be organized in a future national/international conference to communicate with the broader scientific community while developing these best practices.
The goal of this study is to conduct a thorough examination of potential experimental and analytical errors inherent to the 15N2-tracer nitrogen fixation method, in tandem with comprehensive molecular measurements, in mesopelagic ocean waters. Samples will be collected and experimental work conducted on a cruise transect in the North Atlantic Ocean, followed by analytical work in the laboratory. The specific aims of this study are to (1) determine the minimum quantifiable rates of 15N2 fixation based on incubations of mesopelagic waters via characterization of sources of experimental and analytical error, and (2) seek evidence of presence and expression of nitrogen fixation genes via comprehensive molecular approaches on corresponding samples. The range of detectable rates and diazotroph activity from the measurements made in this study will be informative for the understanding of the importance of nitrogen fixation in the oceanic nitrogen budget.

attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String In order to ensure that 15N2 atom% effectuated by Membrane Inlet Mass Spectrometry, we tested whether the mass-specific signal ratios returned by MIMS are equivalent with parallel measurements on a Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometer, on the basis that the latter returns accurate ratios (see 778000 cal_iso). MIMS and IRMS returned identical values for parallel samples.
