Nitrogen in the Pyrenean lakes (Spain)

  title={Nitrogen in the Pyrenean lakes (Spain)},
  author={J. Catal{\'a}n and Llu{\'i}s Camarero and Esperança Gacia and Enric Ballesteros and Marisol Felip},
Lakes in the Pyrenees show a broad variability in nitrogen content and in the distribution of its different oxidation forms, which has no direct relation with any single physiographical, chemical or trophic feature of the lakes. Concentration of bound nitrogen in rain is low compared with other European mountains, but the annual load lies in the middle range. Seasonal and local variation in the composition of rainwater mainly depends on the geographical origin of the storms. Catchment and in… CONTINUE READING
