Geomorphic control on the δ15N of mountain forests

R. G. Hilton; A. West; Niels Hovius; G. G. Roberts;

Mountain forests are subject to high rates of physical erosion which can export particulate nitrogen from ecosystems. However, the impact of geomorphic processes on nitrogen budgets remains poorly constrained. We have used the elemental and isotopic composition of soil ... View more
