Albemarle-Pamlico NAWQA

2 - Major River Basin 2 study (MRB2)

pH trends

Input layer used in the SPARROW model of background phosphorus concentration in sediment, as developed from NURE data.

NAWQA Major River Basin (MRB) studies combine the data from multiple NAWQA study units for regional analysis. The MRB2 study area includes five NAWQA Study-Units (ALBE, ACFB, GAFL, MOBL, SANT, TENN). The MRB2 study is composed of two components:

1) Water-quality trends and loads in the Southeastern U.S.

2) Sources and transport of nutrients to lakes and estuaries using the SPARROW model in the Southeastern U.S. Cycle II work includes completion of the RF1 phosphorus model and phosphorus and nitrogen NHD model papers and a summary circular of SPARROW results.
