Abstract: Abstract: This research quantifies nitrogen (N) fluxes and transformations at the sediment-water interface in relation to N loading and uptake for a backwater system of the Upper Mississippi River. Goals of this work were to provide a better understanding of the roles that backwater sediments play in uptake and removal of N for purposes of determining the management potential of increasing hydrological connectivity between large rivers and adjacent backwaters, wet-lands, and the floodplain to enhance overall N removal efficiency.
