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, 2015

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
