Abstract

Preliminary Estimation of the Nitrogen Balance Between the Atmosphere and a Spruce Forest A contribution to subproject BIATEX-2 Laszlo Horvath*, Soren Christensen^ and Tamas Weidinger^ * Hungarian Meteorological Service, 1181 Budapest, Gilice ter 39., Hungary ^University of Copenhagen, Zoological Institute, Department of Population Biology, 15, Universitetsparken, 2100 Copenhagen, Denmark ^Eotvos Lordnd University, Department for Meteorology, 1083 Budapest, Ludovika ter 2., Hungary The investigation was carried out in the Matra Mountains (Nyirjes station), in Hungary in a Norway Spruce forest. The average height of the stand is about 16 m, with a leaf area index of 3.3. During 1996 the measurement of the flux (nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, dinitrogen oxide) and concentration of nitrogen compounds (ammonia, nitric acid, ammonium and nitrate particles) as well as wet deposition, throughfall and
