Equations for the calculation of N- and P-load on surface waters

    Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


    Nutrient loadson surface and ground waters is the result of inputs from various sources. For the development of a plan for water management information is needed about the consequences of alternative scenarios. Therefore mathematica! approaches have been developed for the contributions by the polluting sources, In this report equations are given to make estimates of the nitrogen and phosphorus load originating from waste water discharges, input water from canals and fertilizing activities in agriculture. Partly the parameter values needed in the equations are already available, partly they will have to he collected from field data in the Southern-Peel study.
