Managing Nutrient Loads to Large Waterbodies: Integrating Watershed and Coastal Perspectives

December 9, 2020 - 12:00pm

Excessive nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) loading is one of the greatest threats to aquatic ecosystems in the Anthropocene, causing eutrophication of rivers, lakes, and marine coastlines worldwide. For large lakes and marine coastlines, eutrophication is driven largely by non-point nutrient sources transported by tributaries, and management efforts tend to focus on the largest watersheds. However, the contributions of smaller watersheds, and the role of the independent dynamics of the receiving waterbody in mediating ecological consequences, are poorly understood.
