Develop and test models for predicting phosphorus losses from agricultural fields in the Western Lake Erie Basin (WLEB). This research addresses concerns identified by the Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance.
- Organize and format existing data to machine-readable format. - Calibrate and testing of P loss models including APLE and SWAT. - Identifying model limitations and areas for model improvement. - Using models to run simulations to evaluate impact of different management strategies in reducing phosphorus loss in the Western Lake Erie Basin.
