nutrient obtainment
Weegy: Definition of nutrient loads versus nutrient concentrations The nutrient load refers to the total amount of nitrogen or phosphorus entering the water during a given time, such as "tons of nitrogen per year." Nutrients may enter the water from runoff, [ groundwater, or the air (in the form of wet deposition such as rain or snow as well as dry deposition). The nutrient concentration refers to the amount of nitrogen or phosphorus in a defined volume of water (such as milligrams of nitrogen per liter). Total nitrogen concentration is the total amount of nitrogen in one liter of water; total nitrogen includes both dissolved nitrogen in the water column and particulate nitrogen contained in algal cells and in organic detritus such as degrading leaves from trees. Like nutrients, concentrations of oxygen, algal abundance (measured as chlorophyll a), and total suspended solids are a measure of how much oxygen, chlorophyll a, or total suspended solids are in a defined volume of water. The relationship between nutrient concentration and nutrient load can vary and depends on the flow, the volume of water in the river, and watershed characteristics. The Tributary Strategy goals refer to nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment loads, but concentration data are used in assessing status and trends. Results from laboratory analyses of water samples are reported in terms of concentration with a known level of precision and accuracy. Salinity Salinity, the concentration of salts in the water, is extremely important to aquatic life. In the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries, salinities range from less than 0.5 parts per thousand (ppt) in non-tidal and tidal fresh areas to about 30 ppt at the mouth of the bay. Ocean water is generally around 36 ppt. Salinities are higher on the eastern side of the bay than on the western side, due in part to the Coriolis effect of the earth’s rotation and in part because more freshwater is discharged from rivers along the western shore of the ...
