  • Turning Research to Knowledge: How Satellites Can Help Us Manage Our Water Resources — White Clay Creek Wild & Scenic River
    to determine its signature wavelength based on soil moisture content Then I used data from the satellite images to distinguish other potential land applications of mushroom compost by identifying other areas with the same wavelength Q What are the principal goals of the research A In the geography field research investigations are often concerned with questions that begin with where The major objective of my research is to detect agricultural areas of high organic matter content which can subsequently indicate high nutrient content Using soil moisture to identify where nitrogen hotspots associated with compost applications could be located is one way to do this Hotspots can be defined in this situation as areas containing elevated nitrogen concentrations My ultimate goal is to create a map of all the potential nitrogen hotspots in the basin Q How will this research help to improve watershed health in the future A Identifying nitrogen hotspots on the land can lead to improved implementation of best management practices BMPs and protection of our waterways Determining these locations will improve our comprehension of the geographic or spatial extent of the pollutants in the watershed Ultimately the hope is that this will lead to more cost effective solutions for nutrient reduction through site specific management Tailoring reduction strategies to specific areas and their specific needs eliminates unnecessary costs which is always a goal in managing our water resources Additionally this research can help the watershed to meet TMDL goals an added benefit for the 130 000 people who call the White Clay home and those who rely on it for their drinking water Kelsey s research illustrates the connectivity of land use impacts on water quality She hopes this project will contribute in helping other researchers scientists managers and policymakers better guide future strategic planning in the watershed Understanding how nutrient hotspots are dispersed in the landscape enhances the scientific body of knowledge related to watershed dynamics It s important we remember that research projects like this create knowledge The more we know the more we can better manage our water for present and future generations Kelsey Moxey c UD CEOE Kelsey hopes to complete her research project culminating with her master s thesis in May The paper is titled Geospatial analysis of nitrogen hotspots from mushroom farming in the Brandywine Christina River watershed You can learn more about how students and faculty in the University of Delaware s Geography Department are using geographic information systems GIS to solve environmental problems in this video featuring Kelsey Tagged remote sensing geography GIS nutrient hotspots mushroom farming Older Post Raising Awareness Via New Educational Signage BLOG RSS Subscribe Name Name First Name Last Name Email Address Thank you Upcoming Events Featured May 7 May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park May 7 2016 12 00pm 4 00pm 12 00 16 00 Shane Morgan Comment White Clay Creek State Park White Clay Creek Fest May 7 2016 12
