Short summary
Polish Institute of Meteorology and Water Management – State Research Institute (IMGW-PIB) has been conducting research on the use of river absorption capacity (RAC) for 5 years. The research focuses on combining mathematical modelling with traditional RAC calculations. For this purpose, the Macromodel DNS (discharge–nutrient–sea) was developed in the IMGW-PIB, along with the Soil Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). The study was conducted on a selected fragment of one of the largest rivers in Poland.
