dc.description.abstract The objective of this study was to characterize N transformation rates in a variety of soil types and horizons using laboratory incubation conditions and to evaluate how these conditions influence the rates. Biological transformations influence the sources and sinks of NO3- -N to the ground water. These rates are viewed as providing information for a mathematical model of N transport and transformation in the unsaturated soil zone in order to contribute to an understanding of the N storage and release characteristics of selected agricultural soils in the watersheds.
