Despite decades of measurements, the nitrogen balance of temperate forest catchments remains poorly understood. Atmospheric nitrogen deposition often greatly exceeds streamwater nitrogen losses; the fate of the remaining nitrogen is highly uncertain. Gaseous losses of nitrogen to denitrification…

Benton Creek on the Priest River Experimental Forest, Idaho, is one of the few gauged streams flowing from a small, forested watershed in the northern Rocky Mountains, a region of summer drought and heavy winter snows. Over sixteen years of streamflow records from this watershed are summarized here…

Assessments of future climate change impacts on ecosystems typically rely on multiple climate model projections, but often utilize only one downscaling approach trained on one set of observations. Here, we explore the extent to which modeled biogeochemical responses to changing climate are affected…
