Annual nutrient loading and yield to Plum Island Estuary, as measured at the Ipswich and Parker Dams

Summary

Short name: 

WAT-VA-Load

Abstract: 

Nutrient concentrations for various forms of N, P, C, as well as suspended sediments, are determined from monthly grab samples taken at the Ipswich and Parker dams. These nutrient concentrations are then used in conjunction with USGS discharge data (recorded at gages in the Parker River at Byfield, MA and the Ipswich River at Ipswich, MA) to calculate annual nutrient loading to the Estuary, coming over each dam. Annual yield is also calculated for both dams.
