The validity of a simple statistical model for estimating fluvial constituent loads: an empirical study involving nutrient loads entering Chesapeake Bay


Water Resources Research 28(9): 2353-2363
The validity of a simple statistical model for estimating fluvial constituent loads: an empirical study involving nutrient loads entering Chesapeake Bay
'Rating curves' and other log linear models for measuring fluvial transport of nutrients were assessed. Split-sample studies using data from tributaries to the Chesapeake Bay showed that a minimum variance unbiased estimator (MVUE), based on a simple log linear model, provided satisfactory load estimates, even where the model exhibited significant lack of fit.
