Riparian wetlands have been shown to be particularly effective “sinks” for nitrate-N, minimizing the downstream export of nitrogen (N) to streams and coastal water bodies. An investigation of the variation and magnitude of denitrification in three constructed and two relict oxbow urban wetlands and in two forested reference wetlands in the Baltimore metropolitan area are studied.
