Effectiveness of variable-width buffer design for sediment reduction

Abstract

Vegetative buffer strips are vegetated areas (usually strips) between fields and waterbodies that can mitigate the effects of agricultural activities by acting as a physical barrier to sediment and nutrients being carried to streams, and thereby have been widely used as a best management practice (BMP). Buffers can slow surface water flow and allow greater… (More)
