The study improves the understanding of nitrate distribution in relation to agronomic and hydrological drivers and (hydro-)geological site characteristics in karst areas and provides practical experience regarding two spectrophotometer used for determining highly time resolved nitrate concentrations. The results can be used to guide e.g. environmental modellers, scientists, consultants or policy makers with respect to the current regulations of the European Union Water Framework Directive.
