Summary of "A framework for evaluating county-level non-point source pollution: Joint use of monitoring and model assessment."

It is believed that non-point source (NPS) pollution threatens the regional environment. Because of the disconnection between the hydrological scale and the administrative scale of implementing feasible management policies in existing research, watershed-based management measures have limited application in current NPS control. In this study, a framework for county-level monitoring and evaluation is proposed, which contains a cascade monitoring scheme and an adaptable assessment scheme. The cascade monitoring scheme is based on the principle of "pollution source-transport pathways-receiving waters" layout method and the adaptable assessment scheme makes full use of monitoring data in the model. A set of processes was designed to monitor and assess county-level NPS pollution, from the initial step of county basic situation investigations to the final step of NPS pollution assessment. Two schemes are included in the process to improve the feasibility of the results. Here, the importance of the joint use of monitoring and simulation for environmental policy and management is stressed, and focus is on the characteristics of administrative boundaries. A case study involving Nanle County is presented, and a detailed layout scheme and the assessment results are given in this paper.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Water pollution from a variety of diffuse sources carried over or through the ground and into water sources such as LAKES; RIVERS; WETLANDS; coastal waters; and GROUNDWATER. Such diffuse sources include roadways and parking lots (GASOLINE; HEAVY METALS; and motor oil), lawns or agricultural land (excess FERTILIZERS, livestock excrement, and PESTICIDES), landfill seepage, and construction sites (chemicals and trash used in construction processes).

Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)
