    Nutrient Delivery Ratio & Sediment Delivery Ratio model theory

    2 hour lecture

    In Week 1, we’ll dive into the theory of the SDR & NDR models, learn about the calibration and validation methods, and discuss policy decisions. We will kick off our 3-week long ‘real life’ team project with the application of both models using data provided by our team during the lab hour.

    NDR & SDR economic valuation & tradeoffs

    3 hour lecture

    In Week 2, the lecture portion will include a discussion about scenarios, valuation, and synthesizing and communicating results to highlight trade offs–all linked to a case study. During the lab hour, we will share and discuss various methods and data sources to link a social or economic valuation of ecosystem services related to water quality results from SDR and NDR, such as avoided costs from sedimentation and water treatment, or recreation and fisheries values.
