Document Type: Journal Paper


Results of an investigation of gaseous ammonia nitrogen losses from alkaline water impoundments are presented. A method of field measurement of these losses is described and a comparison made between rates of loss predicted from a study of impounded water samples with rates of loss obtained by direct field measurement. Results indicate that warm eutrophic impoundments are potentially able to liberate significant quantities of gaseous ammonia nitrogen to the atmosphere due to natural degasification processes.
