NTF01 Volume and Chemistry of Throughfall in Tallgrass Prairie

Summary

Short name: 

NTF01

Abstract: 

Amounts and nitrogen content of water passing through the canopy of tallgrass prairie are compared to similar measurements of bulk precipitation. Measurements include nitrate, ammonia, phosphate and organic nitrogen and phosphorus content of bulk precipitation and throughfall. Variables of interest include vegetation type and amounts, time of year, and time since burning.
