Abstract

New evidence, obtained using a robust method for measuring the delta N-15 of NO3--N in soil, is consistent with denitrification being the major determinant in the vertical distribution of NO3--delta N-15 in soil profiles. These data also suggest that varying moisture regimes result in different effects of soil NO3--N leaching on residual whole soil delta N-15. Copyright (C) 2001 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
