Nitrate Uptake Capacity and Efficiency of Upper Mississippi River

Abstract

PURPOSE: In-stream uptake and processing of nitrate nitrite-N may be improved in large river systems by increasing hydrological connectivity between the main channel and adjoining backwaters, wetlands, and floodplain areas. Engineering designs to increase connectivity and loading to backwaters need to consider nitrate nitrite-N uptake capacity and… (More)
