MITIGATING ANTHROPOGENIC NITROGEN LOADING WITH CONSTRUCTED WETLANDS IN A BOREAL CLIMATE

Sari Uusheimo

Massive amounts of industrially-fixed reactive nitrogen (N) results in excess N amounts in the environment. High N loading from agricultural catchments and wastewater treatment plants can be mitigated by natural N removal processes in aquatic environments. These microbe meditated processes, mainly denitrification, remove the reactive N returning it back to the atmosphere mainly in the fo...
