Geomorphic, hydraulic, and biogeochemical controls on nitrate retention in tidal freshwater marshes
Tidal freshwater wetlands are ideal sites for nitrate retention because of their position within the landscape (near the head of tide); they receive water, discharge, nutrients (N and P), and sediment loads directly from ...
Vegetation-Hydrodynamic Interactions and the Stability of Channel Inlets of Tidal Freshwater Wetlands, Chesapeake Bay System
To maintain elevation, deposition of mineral and organic sediment in tidal freshwater wetlands (TFWs) must outweigh losses due to sea-level rise, erosion, decomposition, and compaction. Sediment loads into tidal marshes ...
TREE TRADE-OFFS IN STREAM RESTORATION: IMPACTS ON RIPARIAN GROUNDWATER QUALITY
Restoring urban degraded stream channels in efforts to improve water quality often includes substantial alteration of the riparian zone which can require the removal of mature trees. This study assessed the impact of tree ...
