Assessing surface water quality and its relation with urban land cover changes in the Lake Calumet area, Greater Chicago.

Abstract

Urban land use and land cover change significantly affect spatial and temporal patterns of runoff, which in turn impacts surface water quality. With the exponential growth in urban areas over the past three decades, changes in land use and land cover to cater for the growth of cities has been a conspicuous spectacle in urban spaces. The main goal of this… (More)
