Abstract Matter retention in streams and rivers is an ecosystem service of outstanding ecological as well as economic importance. Studying and monitoring instream nitrate dynamics is essential to reduce the tremendous consequences of eutrophication of freshwater systems and coastal zones. Moreover, the cycling of nitrate in lotic systems is a paradigm for the instream transport and transformation behavior of any other reactive substance subjected to human perturbation of its natural cycle. Identifying instream processes and drivers that dictate nitrate transport in rivers and quantifying the capacity of rivers to retain nitrate is therefore of scientific as well as political interest and was the motivation for this thesis.
