Freshwater Science - Phosphorus Cycling in Agricultural Streams in the Maumee River Watershed
Phosphorus from the Maumee River watershed is the primary driver of harmful algal bloom size in western Lake Erie. However, there is limited information about the role of rivers in shaping phosphorus loading to the lake. Phosphorous management efforts in the Lake Erie watershed could be hindered if the role of rivers in shaping phosphorus exports to Lake Erie are not considered.
Dr. Jim Hood from The Ohio State University is developing a new modeling approach that leverages high-frequency monitoring data to characterize phosphorus cycling in two streams in the Maumee River watershed. The model will be used to determine how stream processes contribute to seasonal and annual phosphorus runoff into Lake Erie.
