Abstract

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.
