Impact of N-Saturated Upland Forests on Downstream N Pollution in the Tatara River Basin, Japan

Abstract

This study evaluated whether nitrogen (N) saturated upland forests can degrade downstream water quality in the Tatara River Basin, northern Kyushu, western Japan. Our hypothesis is that elevated atmospheric N deposition degrades downstream water quality in a watershed containing N-saturated forests because a considerable amount of atmospherically deposited… (More)
