Kurian, LM, LK Lautz, MJ Mitchell, 2013, Winter hydrology and NO3- export from a forested watershed: a detailed field study in the Adirondack Mountains of New York, USA. Journal of the American Water Resources Association, v. 29, p. 264-283..
"The objective of (this) study was to understand how climatic and hydrogeological factors influence NO-3 dynamics in small watersheds during the winter. (Their) findings indicate that minor melt events were detectable with changes in soil temperature, streamflow, groundwater level, and snow depth. But, based on loading, these events were relatively minor contributors to winter NO-3 loss. A warmer climate and fluctuating snowpack may result in more major mid-winter melt events and greater NO-3 export to surface waters."
