Aqueous solutions (40 mL) of natural abundance (unlabeled) ammonium and nitrate salts at a concentration of 5 µM were equilibrated overnight in a crimpled-sealed 60 mL glass serum vial with an air headspace supplemented with a 1.0 mL injection of 15N2 gas. Control solutions were treated similarly, but not supplemented with 15N2 gas. The 15N/14N ratio of ammonium was measured with the hypobromite-azide method (Zhang et al. 2007). Nitrate + nitrite (NOx) 15N/14N isotope ratios were measured with the denitrifier method (Sigman et al. 2001; Casciotti et al. 2002).
