Nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations and export for the upper Kuparuk River on the North Slope of Alaska in 1980

  title={Nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations and export for the upper Kuparuk River on the North Slope of Alaska in 1980},
  author={Bruce J. Peterson and Teresa L. Corliss and Keith Kriet and John E. Hobbie},
Nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations were measured from May to August 1980 in the upper Kuparuk River, a tundra stream on the North Slope of Alaska. Mean values for nitrogen were 10.8 µg N 1−1 for ammonium, 21.4 µg N 1−1 for nitrate plus nitrite and 248 µg N 1−1 for dissolved organic nitrogen. Mean values for phosphorus were 8.1 µg P 1−1 for total dissolved phosphorus and 4.7 µg P 1−1 for fine particulate phosphorus. Nitrate concentrations were inversely correlated with flow whereas… CONTINUE READING
