General cropping pattern information has been assembled for major irrigated physiographic regions of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, including irrigation system data and soil survey and land class information. Data have been assembled on physical factors leading to sediment and nutrient (phosphorus and nitrogen) losses from irrigated croplands, on methods of characterizing water application to and losses from such croplands, and on the economic techniques and/or factors for assessing the costs of selected pollution abatement practices. The report documents and compares many sources of information related to the estimation of sediment and nutrient losses. A method is proposed for measuring sediment (with associated phosphorus) and nitrogen losses from Pacific Northwest irrigated croplands.
