Record-setting algal bloom in Lake Erie caused by agricultural and meteorological trends consistent with expected future conditions
In 2011, Lake Erie experienced the largest harmful algal bloom in its recorded history, with a peak intensity over three times greater than any previously observed bloom. Here we show that long-termExpand

Assessing and addressing the re-eutrophication of Lake Erie: Central basin hypoxia
article Relieving phosphorus loading is a key management tool for controlling Lake Erie eutrophication. During the 1960s and 1970s, increased phosphorus inputs degraded water quality and reducedExpand

Interacting effects of climate change and agricultural BMPs on nutrient runoff entering Lake Erie
Abstract Agricultural best management practices (BMPs) have been implemented in the watersheds around Lake Erie to reduce nutrient transfer from terrestrial to aquatic ecosystems and thus protect andExpand

A scenario and forecast model for Gulf of Mexico hypoxic area and volume.
For almost three decades, the relative size of the hypoxic region on the Louisiana-Texas continental shelf has drawn scientific and policy attention. During that time, both simple and complex modelsExpand
