Abstract [en]

A 20-year dataset of weekly precipitation observations in Ny-Alesund, Svalbard, was analysed to assess atmospheric wet deposition of nitrogen. Mean annual total nitrogen deposition was 74 mg N/(m(2) yr) but exhibited large interannual variability and was dominated by highly episodic "strong" events, probably caused by rapid transport from European sources. The majority (90%) of precipitation samples were defined as "weak" (< 2mgN/m(2)) and contributed an annual baseline of similar to 17 mg N/(m(2) yr), whereas 10% of precipitation samples were defined as "strong" (>2mgN/m(2)) and additionally contributed up to 225 mg N/(m(2) yr). Nitrate deposition largely occurred in samples within the solid-precipitation season (16 September-2 June), and ammonium deposition occurred equally in both solid and liquid seasons. Trends of reactive nitrogen emissions from Europe are uncertain, and increasing cyclonic activity over the North Atlantic caused by a changing climate might lead to more strong deposition events in Svalbard.
