Wet Deposition of Nitrogenous Pollutants and the Effect of Storm Duration and Wind Direction: A Case Study from Inland Southern California
Padgett, Pamela E. | Minnich, Richard A.
Meteorological factors affecting concentration of dissolved inorganic nitrogen in rain were examined. Rain samples were collected on an event basis from a location 100 km east of the Los Angeles Basin. Analysis of the data demonstrated a double decay function where small increases in rain volume resulted in large decreases in nitrogen concentration. In separate time series collections of individual storms, storm wind direction also influenced nitrogen concentrationsShow more [+] Less [-]
