This study uses a physical/biogeochemical model to analyze the effects of nutrient load reductions on the northern Gulf of Mexico (U.S.). By incrementally reducing nitrogen and phosphorus loads in the model, the researchers were able to determine what nutrient reductions would have to be met in order to reach hypoxia goals in the Gulf.
