Abstract

In this study, the nutrient content of three rural streams and one urban drain in the Darwin region are examined. The aims of this study were to: • Record nutrient concentrations in the four waterways. • determine the proportions of nutrients available in soluble, and inorganic or particulate form. • determine differences in nutrient composition between baseflow and storm flow periods. • determine seasonal differences in nutrient fractionation. • compare nutrient contents of streams that drain catchments with different land uses and varying degrees of development.
