Field work continues

Since April 2019, the Institute of Limnology of Russian Academy of Sciences has started to collect information on the nitrogen and phosphorous content in watercourses of Seleznevka and Sestra rivers. Based on satellite data, the Institute will create maps of various types of underlying surfaces of these catchment areas.

Runoff and nutrient load model calculations will follow. Thus, it is possible to determine nitrogen and phosphorus inputs from different types of underlying surface.
