Abstract

Precipitation samples were collected at five elevations between 4880 m and 6255 m for three storm events in the winter of 2014 to observe changes in inorganic nitrogen concentrations in the precipitation for different elevations of Red Butte Canyon.

Observed Variables Nitrate (NO3), Nitrite (NO2), Ammonium (NH4), Phosphate (PO4), Chloride, Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium
Data Processing Method All samples were tested on the Metrom IC in the Geology dept at the U of U (Contact Diego Fernandez, diego.fernandez@utah.edu). Values given are in mg/l for the concentration of the ion (eg: 0.5 mg/l NH4, NOT NH4-N!!). TN and TP were analysed by the Baker lab at USU. All analytics were run with check standards to verify accuracy of the instrument at the time of the run.
Data Collection Method Passive precipitation collectors made up by a 150 mm funnel attached to a 1 liter Nalgene bottle, which was fixed to a stake about 3 feet off the ground. Site elevations and coordinates approximated from Google Earth imagery for each sampling event are listed in the table.All samples were filtered using 45 micron filters within 24 hrs of collection and refrigerated between collection and analysis.
