    Dissolved Nitrates

    • 1028 Words
    • 5 Pages

    This is a very small amount of nitrate and is justifiable due to the nitrification and oxidation processes. The parameters state that a healthy level of nitrates that should be found in freshwater is less than 1mg/L. As previously shown, the resulting nitrate level is 1.1735mg/L. Therefore showing that the nitrate level is slightly higher than recommended but is still healthy in terms of the biological health of the creek. This could be considered a the outlier of the group in terms of the recommendations as it is the only factor which does not positively correspond with the parameters and recommended data levels for freshwater creeks. This is because of two reasons. One is nitrification, which was previously stated and explained. The other is because of commercial fertilizers used by local farms. These fertilizers contain ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3), which is carried through the land and dispersed into the water, and as ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) and water ( ) are both polar molecules, the ammonium nitrate dissolves into the water. When ammonium nitrate is bonded to dissolved oxygen ( ), the oxidation process converts the compounds into dissolved nitrates ( ). This means that the fertilizers in the local sugar cane farms are negatively effecting the nitrate levels in the water. The prior three tests over the previous two years have resulted in 0mg/L of nitrates occurring in the water. From a chemical standpoint, this means that the water…

    year the sky is full of gigantic grey clouds filled with rainwater. During those nine months there's usually a relatively constant amount rainfall covering Bothell. Many citizens who have been experiencing the phenomena of rain for countless years are unaware that there's a difference in rainwater from previous decades. The pH of rainwater has been slowly decreasing (becoming more acidic) due to pollutants in the air. Industrial areas that are releasing nitrates (NO3-) and sulfates (SO42-) are…

    Floridian Aquifer Essay

    • 1508 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Rising Nitrate Levels in the Floridian Aquifer The Floridian Aquifer is often referred to as the life blood of the state. With over 1,000 springs throughout Florida being fed freshwater from depths of up to 2,000 feet, no other aquifer in the United States can compare. Many of the aquifer fed springs, that once flowed millions of gallons of crystal clear 72-degree water, are now nothing more than algae filled mud holes. The aquifer is in peril, and one of the main contributors to the decline in…

    Aim The objective of the experiment is to explore the process of simple analysis techniques and representative sampling in determining soil nutrient levels. Soil samples collected from Flinders Campus were used to determine their pH, salinity, ammonium, nitrate, phosphate, and nitrite levels. Introduction Unless there is a specific problem detected, the most common reason for undertaking soil analysis is to detect the levels of essential nutrients (Guo, 2009). The commonly analysed nutrients in…

    Nitrate To Nitrite

    • 275 Words
    • 2 Pages

    This test is performed on organisms to see if it has the enzymes to reduce the Nitrate to Nitrite. To run the test, it will require using two colorless chemicals (so make sure you are paying attention) that will either change the color of the organism by the interaction of the new chemicals with the enzymes found in the unknown organism. So, if the organism has the capability to reduce the nitrate to nitrite the solution in the test tube will turn red almost immediately and the organism is…

    2.3 Dissimilitary nitrate reduction According to Croal et al., (2004), bacteria such as Shewanella oneidensis can reduce Nitrate (NO3-) for the purpose of assimilation and in this research is consider only those that engage in dissimilatory nitrate reduction Ammonium (DNRA). Which is the process of using (NO3-) as a terminal electron acceptor in anaerobic respiration. (NO3-)-reducing bacteria is mainly have habitat in freshwater and marine environments. They play significantly affect in the…
