This wiki provides information from the NIWA Eutrophication Risk Assessment research programme. The aim of the programme was to conduct experiments and field observations on the response of aquatic plants, stream and river periphtyon, phytoplankton, and estuarine macroalgae to nutrients, and to develop tools to assess risks of eutrophication at catchment scale.

The programme ran from October 2016 to June 2020, and was funded under Ministry for Business and Innovation Strategic Science Investment funding. Some projects components are continuing after this date, so the wiki may be updated in the future. 

Key sections of the wiki are:
