Abstract

Research involving nutrients and biogeochemistry has a long history at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory (CHL). The majority of nutrient research has focused on nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and dissolved organic carbon (DOC), and less so on other nutrients such as calcium (Ca). This chapter reviews research at the CHL on watershed biogeochemistry and stream organismal and ecosystem responses to nutrient enrichment, with primary attention to N and P. It also identifies future research at CHL that could fill science gaps that are of high priority for regulators and suggests ways that regulators might use existing science findings and datasets from CHL.
