This study utilized a model to simulated over a decade’s worth of riverine flows and nitrogen exports throughout South Korea’s entire hydrological drainage network. The model was used to evaluate the impacts of various ecosystem characteristics (i.e., climate, anthropogenic inputs, geomorphology, etc.) on riverine nitrogen exports from the system. The results of the model are intended to inform management decisions in order to mitigate the incidence of hypoxic conditions in coastal waters more effectively.
