Final Report and products for Science to Assess Future Conservation Practices for the Mississippi River Basin
With leadership and coordination provided by the Eastern Tallgrass Prairie and Big Rivers Landscape Conservation Cooperative, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Landscape Conservation Cooperatives (LCCs), which collectively span the geographic extent of the Mississippi River Basin (MRB), have identified high nutrient runoff (a major contributor to Gulf of Mexico hypoxia), and declines in wildlife populations (especially grassland and riparian bird species), as major conservation challenges requiring collaborative action. This project focused on development and application of spatial decision support systems (DSSs), coupled with surveys of agricultural producers, to assist the LCC community and partner resource management...
Nitrogen and Phosphorus Balances and Accumulation with WRTDS, Predicted, and Hypothetical River Loads
This data release includes data processing scripts, data products, and associated metadata for a study investigating trends in nitrogen and phosphorus river loads to the Gulf of Mexico. This data release consists of three main components: 1) Nitrogen and phosphorus balances and accumulation, which account for major nutrient inputs (fertilizer, manure, waste water treatment facility effluent, atmospheric deposition, weathering and nitrogen fixation) and outputs (crop harvest and removal and gaseous emissions of nitrogen). Annual balances and total accumulation are estimated for the entire Mississippi River Basin, which covers 2,887,854 km2 for the time period 1950 to 2017, 2) Weighted Regression on Time Season and...
