6. Over the entire period, net radiative fluxes provided 75% of the energy for snowmelt, with the rest being provided mostly by downward transfer of sensible heat. The integrated energy flux values over the period (Fig. 5. Snowmelt energy budget for Niwot Ridge (after Cline, 1995, 1996). 7 MJ). 6 MJ. A change in direction from upward to downward net turbulent heat flow coincided with the onset of melt draining from the base of the snowpack. The 1995 snow season had much more snow than 1994, most of it falling in the late spring.
Air from the California/Oregon region seems to be well mixed, perhaps through convection, orographic, or frontal lifting. During the growing season there is no indication of any unmixed air masses reaching the subalpine forest. Thus, air masses that originated over the Pacific will be a combination of marine and continental (with anthropogenic contributions) air when they reach Niwot Ridge. 2. Cluster means of back-trajectories for the 3500-m level asl arriving at Niwot Ridge during the growing season.
Clustering includes 748 back-trajectories for the JuneSeptember 1992-1994 growing season periods. Plus signs denote 1-day intervals. The symbols 10 days back give (top) the percentage of trajectories included in the cluster and (bottom) the arbitrary cluster identifier (Harris and Kahl 1990). Deposition and Emission of Ammonia Nitrogen NH3 may be deposited to or emitted from the alpine vegetation, unlike HNO3, NO~, and NH+, which can only be deposited. The direction of NH3 flux depends on whether its air concentration is above or below the compensation point (C ).
