Technical Bulletin No. 0936: Modeling and Parameter Estimation for Transformations among Various Forms of Nitrogen in Pulp and Paper Mill Effluents

The effects of nutrients in aquatic systems have become a focus of regulatory agencies in recent years. Water quality models are often used to link a nutrient source to a downstream effect. Recent NCASI research has suggested that forest products industry derived effluents typically have a significant fraction of non-biodegradable organic nitrogen.
