Monitoring design for assessing compliance with numeric nutrient standards for rivers and streams using geospatial variables
Elevated levels of nutrients in surface waters are among major human and environmental health concerns. Increases in nutrient concentrations in surface waters have been linked to urban and agricultural development of watersheds across the United States. Recent implementation of numeric nutrient standards in Colorado has prompted a need for greater understanding of human impacts on nutrient levels at different locations within a watershed and for how upstream influences affect the monitoring needs of specific locations. The objectives of this research are (i) to explore the variability of annual ...
