December 2 Starts Webinar Series on New USGS Nutrient Management Tool
November 23, 2011
On Friday, December 2, 2011 from 2:00pm to 3:00 pm (eastern), the USGS will conduct the first in a series of webinars on its six newly-developed regional SPARROW models and online decision support tool. This first webinar will provide an overview of how the tool can be used to: prioritize areas for nutrient reduction actions; identify which sources contribute the largest amounts of nutrients to downstream waters; and evaluate combinations of nutrient reduction scenarios.

USGS plans to conduct additional webinars between November 30 and December 8 on using the regional models for specific areas of the country – Southeast (11/30), Upper Midwest—Upper Mississippi/Great Lakes (12/5), Lower Midwest—Lower Mississippi/Texas Gulf (12/6), Pacific Northwest (12/7), and Missouri River (12/8).
