To estimate changes in nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment loads from technologies and management practices (TMPs), the Chesapeake Bay Program Partnership's CAST model was used to run scenarios with and without TMPs for years between 1985 and 2020 for the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Scenarios were run using the native model segmentation of land-river segments and downscaled to the National Hydrography Dataset (NHD) plus version 2 catchments. The land-river segment loads were disaggregated to the National Hydrography Dataset Plus, Version 2.0 using methods described in "CAST Data Input Disaggregation from County and Land-River Segment Scale to National Hydrography Dataset Plus". The estimated total nitrogen (TN), total...
This metadata record presents analytical results for laboratory microcosms conducted during 2016–18 as part of a study to develop a field test and numerical interpretation method to determine the effective diffusion coefficients and sorption coefficients of trichloroethene (TCE) and daughter products in the rock matrix of sedimentary rock, as well as biodegradation rate coefficients in the borehole. The biodegradation rate coefficients in the borehole are an important component of defining the back-diffusion of TCE from the matrix of sedimentary rock.
