Contents Notes
Summary -- Introduction -- Nutrient inputs and water quality effects -- Getting started: a nutrient control implementation initiative (NCII) -- Allocating nutrient load reduction targets -- Monitoring the effectiveness of nutrient control actions and strategies -- Overcoming perceived obstacles to actions. The world's climate is changing, and it will continue to change throughout the 21st century and beyond.
