Modeled Inflow Validation & Nutrient Loading Estimation in Two Subwatersheds of the Lower Laguna Madre
University of Texas will characterize nutrient loading rates into the Lower Laguna Madre for subwatersheds by monitoring stream flow and water quality (particularly total nitrogen and phosphorus). This information will be used to evaluate Texas Rainfall-Runoff model performance in estimating ungaged inflows and to establish a relationship between ungaged inflows and nutrient loading regimes to the Lower Laguna Madre.
Coastal Natural Hazards Response
Commencement of work on this project is contingent upon approval from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
