Sediment and nutrient budgets are inherently dynamic: evidence from a long-term study of two subtropical reservoirs

O'Brien, Katherine R.; Weber, Tony R.; Leigh, Catherine; Burford, Michele A.


Accurate reservoir budgets are important for un- derstanding regional fluxes of sediment and nutrients. Here we present a comprehensive budget of sediment (based on total suspended solids, TSS), total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) for two subtropical reservoirs on rivers with highly intermittent flow regimes. The budget is completed from July 1997 to June 2011 on the Somerset and Wiven- hoe reservoirs in southeast Queensland, Australia, using ...[Show more]
