Proximate goals of this research were to quantify the rates of nitrate removal, identify processes responsible for nitrogen transformations, and determine patterns of nitrogen loss from a backwater lake of the Upper Mississippi River UMR. The long-range goal was to determine the management potential for removing nitrogen from the UMR by increasing flows of nitrogen-rich main channel water through backwater lakes.
