A Water Quality Trading Simulation for Northeast Kansas


  • Peterson, Jeffrey M.
  • Smith, Craig M.
  • Valentin, Luc


A simulation model is developed to quantify the effects of information and trading ratios on the performance of a water quality market. An application of this model to a northeast Kansas watershed suggests that performance is improved by information provision and a 1:1 trading ratio between point and nonpoint loadings.
