Pollutant Transport Mechanisms and Cumulative Effects Modeling Grant uri icon

Overview

abstract

  • There is a lack of analysis tools to aid in identifying sources of impairment in agricultural and forest watersheds. Lateral flow and saturation excess dominate upland hydrologic processes causing sediment and nutrient contributions to streams. This project includes a series of studies on the effects of lateral flow on soil erosion, sediment delivery, sediment transport in channel systems, and phosphorus transport in agricultural and forest watersheds in Idaho.
