Abstract: 

Dataset provides information about nitrogen as ammonium (N-NH4 in µg L-1) in Lake Paione Inferiore (LPI) at different layer depths along the water column collected at least twice per year (late summer/autumn) within the period 1984-2013. Lake Paione Inferiore is a high altitude Alpine lake, located at 2002 m a.s.l. in the Bognanco Valley, Province of Verbania, Piedmont Region, Italy. It has a surface area of 0.86 ha and a maximum depth of 13.5 m. The Lake is included in the monitoring sites of the UN-ECE Program ICP WATERS (International Cooperative Programme on Assessment and Monitoring of Acidification of Rivers and Lakes) funded by Italian Ministry of the Environment.The lake has been studied since the late 1970s in the framework of research on the effect of acid deposition on chemistry and biology of sensitive lakes.
