Phosphorus Distribution in Blackstrap Lake Sediments
Preview not available

Abstract

Phosphorus is a key element in lake eutrophication, and phosphates are present not only in the $<2\text{-}\mu $ fractions, but also in the coarser-sized fractions of Blackstrap Lake sediments. The physicochemical and biochemical properties of phosphorus of lake sediments, such as solubility, degradability, and transport in suspension between the sediment interstitial water and the overlying water column, may be expected to vary with sediment particle size. Thus, the data presented on distribution of inorganic and organic phosphorus in various sized fractions of lake sediments facilitate understanding of the important role of phosphorus in lake eutrophication.
