A comparative analysis of forest precipitation depositions was performed using pine tree barks as biomonitoring tools and throughfall collectors in pine stands at various test sites in eastern Germany. For the elements sulfate sulfur (SO4-S), nitrate nitrogen (NO3-N), ammonium nitrogen (NH4-N), calcium (Ca), and iron (Fe), regression equations with r2 values between 0.81 and 0.96 were derived, enabling yearly conversion of bark loads to throughfall rates (TFRs) in pine stands (g*m-2*year-1… CONTINUE READING
