Description

This presentation details in-situ benthic chamber field work completed during July and August, 2016, at East Canyon Creek near Kimball Junction, Utah, as part of the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (UDEQ) funded project to determine optimal methods for nitrogen transformation rate determinations. The objective of this portion of the project is to determine field nitrogen transformation rates that can be compared to laboratory based methods and applied in water quality modeling. The poster will detail the field apparatus, 15N isotope transformation studies, and conventional lab analyses used for the determination of site-specific field nitrogen transformation rates. The predominant nitrogen pathways will be highlighted, as well as comparisons among the calculated rates determined by the field study, the lab-based methods, and previous water quality modeling work. The comparison between the field and lab study data is essential in addressing the overall objective of the UDEQ project.
