North Appalachian Experimental Watershed (Coshocton, Ohio)

The North Appalachian Experimental Watershed (NAEW) conducts research on hydrology, surface runoff, groundwater quality, and erosion for agricultural and other purposes. Specific research includes:

  • Quantification of runoff and water quality risks through analysis of data and precipitation and weather investigations are also a component of the research.
  • Long term data base of measurements from rain gages, watershed flumes and weirs, and automated data collecting lysimeters along with soil and climatology data
  • Development knowledge of basic water sediment, and chemical movement which are used to develop practical procedures and verify transport models.
  • Development of safe pesticide and nutrient management strategies while maintaining high agricultural productivity levels,
  • Develop practical management tools for managing pesticide and nutrient runoff

Additional information on the research activities of the NAEW can be found on their website (http://www.ars.usda.gov/research/publications/publications.htm?seq_no_115=116280).
