Abstract

In the Marmot Basin watershed, total S in soils ranged from 2.5-49.8mu mol/g dry mass. High concentrations of sulfate (93- 355mu mol/L), Ca (763-1075mu mol/L), Mg (387-765mu mol/L), and C (1930-4169mu mol/L) in streams were due to mineral weathering. Atmospheric inputs of S at Marmot Creek were much less important than in forest ecosystems subject to acidic deposition. The dynamics of organic S constituents exert a major influence on S flux in some forest ecosystems as a result of their role in mineralization and immobilization processes.-from Authors
