Predicting and Explaining Phosphorus Dynamics in Lake Mendota Using Process Guided Machine Learning
Thursday, October 25, 2018
High phosphorus concentration in lakes can lead to harmful algal blooms that make water toxic and unusable. Predicting lake phosphorus remains challenging, because it is controlled by a combination of physical and biological processes that change through space and time. In this lecture, I will discuss the latest results of a catchment-scale research project studying nutrient dynamics of Lake Mendota.
