    Description

    Studies at the Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF) have measured the pools, cycling, and transport of a variety of elements in both the upland and peatland components of the landscape. Peatlands are important zones of element retention and biogeochemical reactions that greatly influence the chemistry of surface water. In this chapter, we summarize findings on nitrogen (N), sulfur (5), carbon (C), major cations, and other biogeochemically important elements in uplands and peatlands. We have organized this chapter to describe processes that affect the transport and storage of elements in watersheds.
