Assessing the Effectiveness of Agricultural Conservation Practices in the Western Lake Erie Basin Using SWAT: What We Have Learned Conservation Practices in the Western Lake Erie Basin: What We Have Learned
(PRESENTATION) [Presented : Jul 16, 2021]
Lake Erie is threatened by eutrophication and harmful algal blooms (HABs) due to excess nutrient loading from agricultural sources. Agricultural conservation practices (ACPs) have been developed and implemented to reduce nutrient losses but estimating ACP effectiveness is challen...
Associations Between Simulated Future Changes in Climate, Air Quality, and Human Health
(JOURNAL) [Published : Jan 04, 2021]
Importance Future changes in climate are likely to adversely affect human health by affecting concentrations of particulate matter sized less than 2.5 μm (PM2.5) and ozone (O3) in many areas. However, the degree to which these outcomes may be mitigated by reducing air polluta...
