Nutrient Trends in the Nontidal Chesapeake Bay Watershed

Nutrient Trends in the Nontidal Chesapeake Bay Watershed

The objective of this project is to develop an extension of the flow-normalization (FN) procedure of the WRTDS (“Weighted Regressions on Time, Discharge, and Season”) method. This extension is being applied to the Chesapeake Bay Nontidal Monitoring Network to quantify water-quality trends under different flow conditions and to guide the direction of additional analysis for capturing the underlying drivers, which can inform management strategies toward improving water quality.
