Research Project: Quantify Hydrologic Attributes Affecting Chemical Loading to Runoff Water

Location: National Soil Erosion Research Lab

Project Number: 5020-12130-001-06
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 01, 2012
End Date: Jul 31, 2016

Quantify surface and subsurface hydrologic effects on runoff chemical transport and determine the scaling relationship between laboratory derived chemical loading parameters to field scale processes.

Conduct chemical loading experiments on a multi-segment recirculating flume which has hydrologic controls for surface and subsurface water to identify the dominant hydrologic process affecting chemical transport and conduct a stream injection study and compare results with the laboratory flume study to derive the scaling relationship between lab and field results.
