Transport in Nutrient and Contaminant Transfer

Author / Editor: M. Stone
Publication Number: 263
ISBN Number: 978-1-901502-21-3
Year: 2000
Pages: 307

Price: £15.00

This publication comprises the proceedings of the International Symposium on The Role of Erosion and Sediment Transport in Nutrient and Contaminant Transfer held at Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, in July 2000. Increasing awareness of the effects of sediment-associated chemical transfer on water quality and ecosystem health has raised concern for the sus­tainable use of water resources worldwide. Consequently, there is global concern for the conveyance of sediment-associated nutrients and contaminants across eroding land surfaces and into receiving waters. The rates and magnitudes of nutrient and contaminant transfer vary in space and time according to the nature of erosion processes, sediment sources as well as conveyance and in-stream processes. Knowledge regarding the spatial and temporal variation of sediment sources as well as sediment properties and environmental factors affecting transport processes is re­quired to model sediment-associated nutrient and con­taminant transfer. Such information is necessary to plan and manage the sustainable use of water resources.

This volume contains 34 papers spread over five topics:

Variability in nutrient, contaminant and sediment transfer
Terrestrial transfer processes
Suspended sediment characteristics and transport processes 
Sinks and sources of nutrients and contaminants
Modelling nutrient and contaminant transfer

The symposium contributed to UNESCO IHP-V Project 2.1 Vegetation, Land Use and Erosion
