"A Watershed Approach to Understanding Urban Eutrophication"
Eutrophication — the degradation of water quality from nutrient-rich runoff — continues to impair the capacity for urban waters to provide clean drinking water, habitat to support biodiversity, food, and recreational and aesthetic opportunities. Hobbie and colleagues are taking a watershed approach to understanding the sources of nutrients that are contributing to urban water pollution. In this talk, Hobbie will share insights from her research that might point toward novel solutions to urban water quality issues.
