Short summary
Terrestrial inputs are considered the major driver of longitudinal patterns of nutrient concentration. Yet we show that longitudinal trends result from hydrological mixing with terrestrial inputs and in-stream processes. We challenge the idea that nutrient concentrations decrease downstream when in-stream net uptake is high. Conversely, in-stream processes can strongly affect stream nutrient chemistry and fluxes even in the absence of consistent longitudinal trends in nutrient concentration.
