  2. The Effect of Riparian Zones on Nitrate Removal by Denitrification at the River Basin Scale

    UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis

    By Linh Hoang

    At the interface between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, the riparian zone plays an important role in nitrogen removal, despite the minor proportion of the land area that it covers. Very limited studies are carried out in modelling these effects at the river basin scales. The Soil and Water...
