Production of nitrate spikes in a model of ammonium biodegradation

Abstract:

Nitrification at the site of a contaminant ammonium plume from a former coal carbonisation plant can be modelled with three competing bacterial populations of Nitrosomonas, Nitrobacter, and Brocadia anammoxidans. Oscillations of chemical species at the site can be explained by a reduced model of ammonium competition between Nitrosomonas and B. anammoxidans which effectively acts as an activator-inhibitor system. Stable oscillations occur in conditions of low nutrient (ammonium) supply and thi...
