Nutrient Delivery from the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico and Effects of Cropland Conservation

  title={Nutrient Delivery from the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico and Effects of Cropland Conservation},
  author={Mike White and J. Arnold and Lee Norfleet and Santhi Chinnasamy and Mauro DiLuzio},
Excessive nutrients transported from the Mississippi River Basin (MRB) have created a hypoxic zone within the Gulf of Mexico, with numerous negative ecological effects. Furthermore, federal expenditures on agricultural conservation practices have received intense scrutiny in recent years. Partly driven by these factors, the USDA Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) recently completed a comprehensive evaluation of nutrient sources and delivery to the Gulf. The modeling framework used… CONTINUE READING
