The Influence of Land Use on Lake Nutrients Varies with Watershed Transport Capacity

  title={The Influence of Land Use on Lake Nutrients Varies with Watershed Transport Capacity},
  author={Jennifer M. Fraterrigo and John A. Downing},
Nutrient loading to lakes depends on both the availability of nutrients in a watershed and their potential for movement to a lake. Many studies have demonstrated that variation in watershed land use can translate to differences in lake water quality by affecting nutrient availability. There have been few attempts, however, to understand how loading to surface waters is affected by land use when there are differences in watershed transport capacity. We compared the relationship between land use… CONTINUE READING
