This paper examines the growth and uptake of phosphorus into algal biofilms in the River Kennet, a lowland chalk (Cretaceous-age) stream in southern England. Algal biofilms were grown on artificial plastic substrates (templates) placed (i) on the riverbed and (ii) within the mid-water column. Experiments were set up to examine differences in growth rates of(More)
Soluble reactive phosphorus (SRP) concentrations in the River Thames, south east England, have significantly decreased from an annual maximum of 2100 μg l(-1) in 1997 to 344 in 2010, primarily due to the introduction of phosphorus (P) removal at sewage treatment works within the catchment. However, despite this improvement in water quality, phytoplankton(More)
This paper examines the behaviour of phosphorus (P) in a lowland chalk (Cretaceous-age) stream, the upper River Kennet in southern England, which has been subject to P remediation by tertiary treatment at the major sewage treatment works in the area. The effects of treatment are examined in relation to boron, a conservative tracer of sewage effluent and in(More)
