  • The fluxes and concentrations ofmaterials from two contiguous second-order watershedsin the Coastal Plain of Maryland, U.S.A. were measuredfor six years prior to and six years subsequent to theformation of a 1.25 ha beaver pond near the bottom ofone of the watersheds. The watersheds have a clayaquiclude and were equipped with V-notch weirs andcontinuous volume-integrating water samplers. Thebeaver pond reduced annual discharge of water,total-N, total-P, dissolved silicate, TOC, and TSS by8, 18… CONTINUE READING
