Agricultural Ecology Program: Understanding sources and sinks of
nutrients and sediment in the upper Susquehanna River basin

Project Overview

Motivation:

          The Chesapeake Bay estuary is suffering from excessive nutrient and sediment inputs. Improving nutrient and erosion controls in the watershed of the Susquehanna River, the largest river entering the Bay, is one way to improve the health of the Bay itself. New York is committed to reduce the impact of its part of the Susquehanna River watershed on the Bay. This project is designed to aid this effort with a better understanding of sources and sinks of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and sediments in the New York portion of the Susquehanna River basin.
