'Two studies were undertaken. An initial study in 1974 produced results that indicated significant losses of nitrogen and some other elements. The study was repeated 1981 as a check on the results of the 1974 burn, and to provide an assessment of the methods used in the first study. Results of both burns are reported in this paper.'
