Summary

A generalized yet detailed wetland ecosystem model was calibrated and validated with 3 years’s data from four similarly constructed wetlands in northeastern Illinois, USA. The model was used to explore the role of different wetland structure and function in relation to phosphorus retention, to integrate collected data and provide a better understanding at the ecosystem level about constructed wetlands, and to predict the sediment and phosphorus retentions under different hydrologic conditions. Four submodels — hydrology, primary productivity, sediments, and phosphorus — were included in the model. Phosphorus cycling was reasonably simulated with one set of parameters for a total of 10 wetland-years. The model showed that autochthonous [...]
