The effects of altered climate, soil and management data on nitrate dynamics in the unsaturated zone - sensitivity analysis using models

Bericht uber die 5 Lysimetertagung "Stofftransport und Stoffbilanz in der ungesattigten Zone" am 25 und 26 April 1996: 111-118

The effects of altered climate, soil and management data on nitrate dynamics in the unsaturated zone - sensitivity analysis using models

Using the computer simulation models SIMWASER and STOTRASIM, the effects of changing various input data on the predicted rate of deep water seepage and N losses at 2 sites in Austria were compared. Alterations in these parameters of up to 50% produced changes in the two output quantities of 0- 50%.
