The quantities of nitrate-N in the Wernersbach stream in Tharandt Forest

Wissenschaftliche Zeitschrift der Technischen Universitat Dresden 37(6): 233-241

The quantities of nitrate-N in the Wernersbach stream in Tharandt Forest

Data are presented from a study of a Norway spruce catchment (457.4 ha) in E. Germany from 1978 to 1985. Part of the catchment (15%) was aerially treated with 150 kg/ha N as urea in 1978 and again in 1981. The effects of these fertilizer treatments, and of the meteorological and hydrological conditions, on the nitrate situation were analysed for the hydrological years 1979 to 1983.
