Calculations showed that nitrate concentrations in this shallow groundwater were significantly less than expected and, even though the nitrate load was greatest from this source, the amount of denitrification was also greatest in this zone because of the high N flux combined with the partially reduced environment. Similar to groundwater, filtration is also the main attenuation process for P in surface and sub-surface runoff. For example, buffer or riparian zones can be very effective at attenuating sediments and attached contaminants from surface runoff originating from cropped land upslope.
