Description: Special Report
Abstract: The fate of the mineral nitrogen in wastewater can be established only through natural or artificial stable isotopic labeling. This report assesses the possibilities and problems associated with such tracer techniques applied to the small amounts of nitrogen normally present after secondary waste treatment. The methods outlined for sample processing to minimize analytical errors are applicable to other types of environmental research involving isotope ratio analysis as a means of tracing nitrogen; in the biosphere.
