I am doing my masters in Mining Engineering.
As an assignment I have to give  a 10 slide, 6 minute presentation on 'a contaminant of  emerging concern' and current and future remediation options.
I am keen to do agricultural run off but I'm finding it hard to find peer review on methods such as no dig to reduce sediment loss.
Anyone have experience of bringing permaculture into the scientific arena?

I am not really one to answer as I am just a dumb sheep farmer, however I think a lot of research as been done in the use of wood chips to effectively filter out the runoff of nitrates. Sadly phosphrous is the greater concern, but that nitrate mitigation might be a place to start???
