Plain Language Summary

Climate change and climate-driven feedbacks on catchment hydrology and biogeochemistry have the potential to alter the aquatic versus atmospheric fate of nitrogen (N) in forests. This study investigated the hypothesis that during the forest growth season, topography redistributes water and water-soluble precursors (i.e., dissolved organic carbon and nitrate) for the formation of gaseous N species.
