This dataset includes nitrogen content (% dry mass) and stable isotopic composition of several lichen species within and surrounding the Salt Lake City metropolitan area.
This study focused on the nitrogen content and stable nitrogen isotope ratio of lichens on an elevational gradient along Red Butte Creek and Grandeur Peak to determine if lichens hold a record of inversion-based nitrogen deposition. After plotting the nitrogen content of the various samples it was determined that lichens do not hold a record of inversion-based nitrogen deposition.
