EdenDTC presentations at AGU Fall Meeting 2016

EdenDTC presentations at AGU Fall Meeting 2016

The EdenDTC team had five presentations at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in 2016 covering different aspects of the project. These poster presentations covered an overview of the project, the use of the Treatment Train for diffuse pollution mitigation, the observed nitrogen dynamics, new approaches to sampling soil P levels and the impacts on […]

Dedra Banks Aerial 360

This 360 degree photoshere was taken over the mitigation catchment’s outlet station near the Dedra Banks farm. You can click and drag the image to see the landscape and the land management. This image was taken on the 14th June 2016.

What is the cost to a farm of diffuse pollution?

What is the cost to a farm of diffuse pollution?

What is the cost to a farm of diffuse pollution? from Sim Reaney on Vimeo. This video discusses the costs of diffuse pollution losses to farmers based on the monitoring data from the EdenDTC project. The video also discusses the potential mitigation actions that could be taken to minimise the losses.

An Introduction to the Defra Demonstration Test Catchments (DTC) Programme

An Introduction to the Defra Demonstration Test Catchments (DTC) Programme

The Demonstration Test Catchments (DTC) programme was established in December 2009 to inform the mitigation of agricultural water pollution across farmed landscapes in England. We have taken a ‘learning by doing’ approach to develop, test and demonstrate suites of measures at landscape scale that are practical within commercial farming systems. Our approach recognises the river […]

Dominant mechanisms for the delivery of fine sediment and phosphorus to fluvial networks draining grassland dominated headwater catchments

 M.T. Perks , G.J. Owen, C.McW.H. Benskin, J. Jonczyk, C. Deasy, S. Burke, S.M. Reaney, P.M. Haygarth Science of The Total Environment, 523 (1) 178–190 Abstract Recent advances in monitoring technology have enabled high frequency, in-situ measurements of total phosphorus and total reactive phosphorus to be undertaken with high precision, whilst turbidity can provide an excellent […]

MSc research on diffuse pollution in the River Eden catchment using SCIMAP by Steph Dixon

Steph Dixon has completed her MSc by Research that looked at how to incorporate temporal issues associated with rural diffuse pollution within the SCIMAP risk mapping framework. The full Masters by Research thesis is on the Durham University e Thesis site at http://etheses.dur.ac.uk/6895/ The Effects of Land Management and Predicted Climate Change on Hydrological Connectivity […]
