Publisher and Date:(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 2013)Wetlands are rich ecosystems recognized for ameliorating floods improving water quality and providing other ecosystem benefits. This part of a two-paper series presents a relatively detailed process-based model for nitrogen and phosphorus retention cycling and removal in flooded wetlands. The model captures salient features of nutrient dynamics and accounts for complex interactions among various physical biogeochemical and physiological processes. The model simulates oxygen dynamics and the impact ...
Publisher and Date:(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 2013)In this paper the authors applied and evaluated the wetland nutrient model that was described in Paper I. Hydrologic and water quality data from a small restored wetland located on Kent Island Maryland which is part of the Delmarva Peninsula on the eastern shores of the Chesapeake Bay was used for this purpose. The model was assessed through various methods against the observed data in simulating nitrogen (N) phosphorus (P) and total suspended sediment (TSS) dynamics. Time series plots of observed ...
