How to control dissolved organic matter quality
Streams receive substantial terrestrial deliveries of dissolved organic matter (DOM). This is a serious environmental issue in many catchments of the northern hemisphere. DOM impairs water quality and affects the biogeochemical and ecological functioning of aquatic ecosystems. In this context, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions project COSTREAM will explore the links between management actions and stream DOM variability. Specifically, it will investigate the impact of nitrogen mineral fertiliser on the production of terrestrial DOM at the seasonal scale. It will also consider how land use management plans interact with shifts in climatic drivers to regulate stream DOM patterns at the regional scale. These findings will be useful for the improvement of science-based management and restoration solutions.
