    Phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) concentrations were measured at 75 points in the upper reaches of rivers draining into the agricultural watersheds south of the Ibaraki prefecture during the summer and winter of year 2009. A geographic information system (GIS) was used to combine the environmental information regarding the watersheds such as land use, topography, and soil with water quality data for a statistical analysis.
