Changes in Nutrient Structure of the Cuyahoga River

We propose to investigate changes in nutrient structure of the   Cuyahoga River through analysis of phosphorus speciation and   isotopes. The goal of this proposed research is to obtained an   exploratory dataset towards better understanding nutrient  transferring and cycling in the Cuyahoga River Watershed. This   project involves several aspects of research that have never been   explored in this watershed and has the potential to generate the   needed information that would help us pinpoint the causes of recent   increases in DRP loadings from the Lake Erie tributaries. The   results of this research may serve as a base or startpoint for   future research at Cleveland State.
