Including the Stream Channel in a Comprehensive View of Water Quality
Wednesday, July 14 (12 pm – 1 pm)
In the webinar, “Are Stream Channel Sediment and Nutrient Sources Masking Upland Conservation Progress?,” Beck will discuss a recent study of in-channel sediment contributions to phosphorus levels in water. Noting that there is a growing body of evidence suggesting the stream channel itself may act as a significant source of sediment and nutrients such as phosphorus, Beck has been working to quantify the sources of sediment and phosphorus at the watershed scale.
