Title
Development and testing of a risk indexing framework to determine field-scale critical source areas of faecal bacteria on grassland
Description
This paper draws on lessons from a UK case study in the management of diffuse microbial pollution from grassland farm systems in the Taw catchment, southwest England. We report on the development and preliminary testing of a field-scale faecal indicator organism risk indexing tool (FIORIT).
