Two urban constructed wetlands (CWs) were Investigated to quantify the processing of stormwater nutrient over diurnal to decadal scales, under different hydro-climatological and biogeochemical conditions. The research Identified how restoration and hydrological regimes impacted the performance of the CWs. A proxy metabolism indicator was developed that correlated with nutrient attenuation within the CWs, and could be used as an Indicator of CW function when routine sampling is resource constrained. The work targeted systems under Mediterranean climates that experience higher seasonal and annual variability in hydrology compared to other urban regions of the world.
