Tracking ammonia volatilization and fate from emission source to pristine ecosytem
Ammonia has been widely documented as a contributor to negative impacts on natural ecosystems. Agricultural related management has been closely tied to ammonia emission and therefore negative impacts of ammonia pollution. The aim of this research is to improve our current understanding of how ammonia is lost from native and agricultural soils and if nitrogen isotopes can be used to elucidate what sources of ammonia pollution affect native ecosystems the most. Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) has undergone ecosystem changes due to excessive nitrogen deposition in the forms of ammonium, nitrate ...
