Nitrogen deposition and carbon sequestration


Nadelhoffer et al. use 15N-tracer studies in nine northern forests to argue that increasing inputs of combined nitrogen from the atmosphere are unlikely to cause the increase in forest growth that has been postulated as the ‘missing sink’ for atmospheric CO2. Only about 20% of the tracer ended up in the trees and about 70% remained in the organic and… (More)
