Abstract

Precipitation and runoff chemistry were monitored during three successive summer storms on a small Sonoran Desert catchment. Both nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in precipitation were high yet lower than in runoff water. However, 75-90 per cent of precipitation did not run off and the storm events represented net inputs of dissolved N and P to the watershed. -from Authors
