Suspended Sediment, C, N, P, and Si Yields from the Mississippi River Basin

  title={Suspended Sediment, C, N, P, and Si Yields from the Mississippi River Basin},
  author={Robert E. Turner and Nancy N Rabalais},
The annual loads of C,N,P, silicate, total suspended sediment (mass) and their yields (mass area−1) were estimated for six watersheds of the Mississippi River Basin (MRB) using water quality and water discharge records for 1973 to 1994. The highest load of suspended sediments is from the Missouri watershed (58 mt km2 yr−1), which is also the largest among the six major sub-basins. The Ohio watershed delivers the largest load of water (38%). The Upper Mississippi has the largest total nitrogen… CONTINUE READING
