Puget Sound Dissolved Oxygen Model Nutrient Load Summary for 1999-2008
Puget Sound Dissolved Oxygen Model Nutrient Load Summary for 1999-2008 (Number of pages: 172) (Publication Size: 18478KB)
|Author(s)||Mohamedali, T., M. Roberts, B. Sackmann, and A. Kolosseus|
|Description||Nutrient loads, particularly nitrogen, have been identified as a potential stressor to the Puget Sound ecosystem. These loads can lower dissolved oxygen concentrations in marine waters. The Department of Ecology is developing the Puget Sound Dissolved Oxygen Model to further understand the processes that affect low dissolved oxygen in Puget Sound. This report presents estimates of nutrient loading into Puget Sound and the Straits Georgia and Juan de Fuca from rivers and wastewater treatment plants. These estimates will be used as inputs into the Puget Sound Dissolved Oxygen model. The report also presents estimates of natural nutrient loads and compares results with those of previous studies.|
