Effect of fog on sea salt deposition on peat soil in boreal Picea glehnii forests in Ochiishi, eastern Hokkaido, Japan

Effect of fog on sea salt deposition on peat soil in boreal Picea glehnii forests in Ochiishi, eastern Hokkaido, Japan

Ecological Research 18(5): 587-597

We investigated seasonal changes in the chemical properties of precipitation (bulk deposition, throughfall and stem flow) in Picea glehnii forests and neighbouring Sphagnum communities in three ombrotrophic mires in Ochiishi district, northern Japan, to clarify the contribution of fog to nutrient addition to mires. Na+ and Cl- dominated the bulk deposition, followed by Mg2+, Ca2+ and SO42-, implying an oceanic influence on mire chemistry.
