Short summary
This paper is important for water resource management, being concerned with irrigation return flow causing hotspots in nitrate concentrations in groundwater and denitrification imprints where nitrate concentrations are reduced by denitrification although the dissolved oxygen concentration is not low. The work is highly significant for modelling of nitrate transport through soil–groundwater systems, for understanding denitrification processes, and for managing fertilizer application to land.
