Abstract : This note describes the application of FLUX to riverine wetland systems. FLUX is a computer program designed to estimate tributary mass discharges (loadings) into reservoirs. The program uses periodic concentration data and continuous flow records to estimate chemical loadings. This information can be used to consider the influence of wetlands on the water quality of adjacent lotic water bodies. (AN)
