Cloudwater Inputs of Nitrogen to Forest Ecosystems in Southern Chile: Forms, Fluxes, and Sources

  title={Cloudwater Inputs of Nitrogen to Forest Ecosystems in Southern Chile: Forms, Fluxes, and Sources},
  author={Kathleen C. Weathers and Gary M. Lovett and Gene E. Likens and Nina F. M. Caraco},
Nitrogen (N) has been considered a limiting nutrient to many aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. However, human activity has resulted in increased atmospheric N deposition worldwide such that N pollution is now altering ecosystem function in many locations. Research on atmospheric deposition has focused primarily on inorganic nitrogen (DIN; NH4 +-N + NO3 −-N) via rainwater and dry deposition as the main N input to ecosystems. Recently, organic N (ON) has been shown to be an important… CONTINUE READING
