In an effort to characterize the spatial and temporal patterns of nitrogen concentration and load in streams of the Lake Tahoe basin, we analyzed 10 years of data from 10 streams, developing discharge-concentration relationships and total load estimates for nitrate-N, ammonium-N, and organic N. The results indicate that (1) most of the nitrate transport occurs early in the snowmelt season or during large winter rainstorms; (2) dissolved organic nitrogen concentrations peak early in the runoff… CONTINUE READING
