Keywords:

  • modelling role of vegetated buffer strips - reducing transfer of sediment from land to watercourses;
  • phosphorus, primary limiting factor - in process of freshwater eutrophication;
  • controlling transfer of sediment from agricultural land to water bodies - component of protection of aquatic environment;
  • application of erosion model - assessment of buffer performance, at two field sites;
  • only EUROSEM and modified MMF model - using parameters directly;
  • EUROSEM, assumption that if transport capacity - is not reached, the flow is erosive;
  • model application, and MMF model - simulating movement of water and sediment over landscape from source to delivery to river system;
  • erosion and sedimentation processes - simulated by MMF model;
  • simplified version of CREAMS model - simulating processes of sediment deposition within vegetated buffer
