Document Type: Journal Paper


Preliminary results of an investigation of gaseous ammonia nitrogen losses induced by surface turbulence in rivers and streams are presented and the potential significance of this method of nitrogen loss in reducing fertilization of downstream receiving waters is described. Rate constants for ammonia nitrogen loss are given and the variation of these constants with pH and temperature is indicated.
