Short summary
Understanding nitrogen (N) cycling mechanisms in the ocean is crucial for improving ecosystem management. Here we study N processes by in situ lander and isotope tracer techniques in – so far overlooked – sediments with low organic loads. Denitrification and anammox are the main N transformation processes. However, we demonstrate high contribution of dissimilatory nitrate reduction to ammonium, which recycles a major portion of fixed N to the water column and sustains primary production.
