Summary:
The objective of this study was to update estimates of total nitrogen (TN) loadings to Tampa Bay. A "best estimate" of the magnitude of annual TN loadings for 1992-94 was made using measured data for streamflow, surface water and groundwater quality, point source discharges, rainfall, and rain chemistry to the greatest extent feasible. Nonpoint source loads from areas of the watershed that did not have streamflow and water quality data available (ungaged areas) were modeled using the same empirical model that was used to estimate 1985-91 ungaged nonpoint source loads.
