HIGH-FREQUENCY IN-STREAM NITRATE SENSING TO ADVANCE MODELS AND INFORM WATERSHED MANAGMENT

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Precision conservation has the potential to dramatically reduce nonpoint source nutrient pollution. By combining high-spatial resolution geospatial data and high-frequency instream nutrient data, we will be able to develop understanding of hot spots and hot moments of nutrient pollution. Data will include high-frequency time series of nitrate concentration, discharge, dissolved oxygen, electrical conductivity, and PAR at stream reach (upstream and downstream of CSA), subcatchment, and subwatershed scales. Spatial data will include high-resolution (1m2) data of hotspots and potential BMP locations to mitigate pollution. A more systematic understanding of how multiple hydrological and biogeochemical processes control c-Q patterns across multiple spatial and temporal scales is required for effective watershed management strategies.
