Nitrate dynamics in shallow groundwater and the potential for transport to off-site water bodies.

Rasiah, V; Armour, J; Yamamoto, T; Mahendrarajah, S; Heiner, D A

Description

Large quantities of the nitrate leaching below the crop root-zone, particularly during the wet season, in the tropical Far North Queensland (FNQ) of Australia, may be entering off and on-site the water bodies. The objectives of this study were to (i) provide quantitative information on NO3-N in the shallow fluctuating groundwater (GW) that develops during the rainy season (January through May) in the Johnstone River Catchment (JRC) of FNQ and (ii) determine whether this NO3-N is potentially...[Show more]
