SUMMARY

METADATA

DATA

DOCUMENTS

Snowy mountain
  • Subsurface processes dominate streamwater chemistry in small upland catchments
  • Partitioning of nitrate into mobile and immobile fractions may occur within the solum
  • Major nitrate export occurred during the 1993-1994 spring snowmelt period
