Journal Article: Thinking outside of the lake: Can controls on nutrient inputs into Lake Erie benefit stream conservation in its watershed?

Abstract Investment in agricultural conservation practices (CPs) to address Lake Erie’s re-eutrophication may offer benefits that extend beyond the lake, such as improved habitat conditions for fish communities throughout the watershed. If such conditions are not explicitly considered in Lake

Journal Article: Impact of model development, calibration and validation decisions on hydrological simulations in West Lake Erie Basin

Abstract Watershed simulation models are used extensively to investigate hydrologic processes, landuse and climate change impacts, pollutant load assessments and best management practices (BMPs). Developing, calibrating and validating these models require a number of critical decisions that will influence the
