Manure and fertilizer inputs to land in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, 1950–2012 Scientific Investigations Report 2018-5022

August 9, 2018

Understanding changing nutrient concentrations in surface waters requires quantitative information on changing nutrient sources in contributing watersheds.

Cover of SIR 20185022

The proportion of nutrient inputs reaching streams and rivers is directly affected by when and where those nutrients enter the landscape. The goal of this report is to contribute to the U.S. Geological Survey’s efforts to describe spatial and temporal patterns in nutrient inputs to the landscape in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, thereby informing efforts to understand changes in riverine and estuarine conditions.
