Catch up on sediments to understand particulate phosphorus processes

PhD student Hannah Wenng and co-authors recently published a paper where they study catchment processes of particle mobilisation and transport. In arable land, phosphorus losses are often closely linked to sediment losses, which means that a better understanding of the sediment-runoff processes is important to select the most optimal and targeted mitigation measures to reduce eutrophication. Hannah installed turbidity sensors

What headwater streams can tell us

A milestone in BIOWATER was reached when the paper “Land-use dominates climate controls on nitrogen and phosphorus export from managed and natural Nordic headwater catchments” was published in the scientific journal Hydrological Processes. In Module 2 of BIOWATER, our aim is to understand catchment processes and trends in nutrients by analysing long-term data series. In this paper, 12 authors have
