Description: In N-limited ecosystems, fertilization by N deposition may enhance plant growth and thus impact C sequestration. In many N deposition-C sequestration experiments, N is added directly to the soil, bypassing canopy processes and potentially favoring N immobilization by the soil. To understand the impact of enhanced N deposition on a low fertility unmanaged forest and better emulate natural N deposition processes, we added 18 kg N ha-1 year-1 as dissolved NH4NO3 directly to the canopy of 21 ha of spruce-hemlock forest.
Keywords: nitrogen-15, nitrate, ammonium, nitrogen deposition, carbon sequestration, Forest elemental cycling
