Puget Sound Nutrient Synthesis Report, Part 2: Comparison of Watershed Nutrient Load Estimates
Puget Sound Nutrient Synthesis Report, Part 2: Comparison of Watershed Nutrient Load Estimates (Number of pages: 76) (Publication Size: 6184KB)
|Description||Part 2 of the Puget Sound Nutrient Synthesis Report identifies and quantifies nutrient sources within watersheds draining into Puget Sound by using available nutrient load estimates from regional water quality models and studies. This report describes nutrient sources to Puget Sound and includes an exploratory analysis of nutrient load estimates using results from the USGS Spatially Referenced Regressions On Watershed Attributes (SPARROW) model Pacific Northwest application. SPARROW results were compared with nutrient load estimates used as inputs for the Salish Sea Model. Results from this report may be used to help guide nutrient management activities throughout the region.|
