LULC

  • Most: Row crops

  • Pasture/Hay

  • Grasslands

  • Orchards/Vineyards

  • Forests

  • Fertilizer


Watershed exports and storm events
Watershed Exports and Storm Events

  • Calculate Runoff

    * to be completed

  • Compare Runoff and Precipitation data

    * to be completed

  • Storm Events and LULC

    • Possible increase N in estuary


Next year at utmsi
Next year at UTMSI…

  • Surface water samples

  • Analyze water chemistry

  • Focus on Storm Events

  • Non-point source pollution
