Sedimentary records of organic matter inputs (stable nitrogen isotopes [d 15 N], nitrogen [N], and carbon [C] content), phytoplankton abundance (pigments, stable carbon isotopes [d13C]), and community composition (pigments) were used to reconstruct the history and pathway to water-quality degradation in a Swedish Baltic coastal bay. Changes in nutrient sources and cycling began in the 1800s, but eutrophication intensified only after the 1950s, coincident with intensified agricultural practices… CONTINUE READING
