Confronting the natural variability and modeling uncertainty of nonpoint source pollution in water quality management
Nonpoint source pollution is the primary cause of impaired water bodies in the United States and around the world. Hence, managing the water quality is hinged mainly on controlling this type of pollution. However, characterization of nonpoint source pollution is extremely difficult due to high inherent natural variability and uncertainty. Nonpoint source pollution loads depend on climate, land use, and other environmental conditions that are highly variable by nature. On the other hand, since it is often infeasible to measure pollutant loads from nonpoint sources within a watershed using monitoring ...
