Eutrophication and Public Health

While there is no evidence of directly linking toxic algal blooms with eutrophication, it is highly potential biotoxins to endanger public health, having toxic algal blooms and red tides in eutrophic

A Critical Review of Methods for Analyzing Freshwater Eutrophication

Water eutrophication is a global environmental problem that poses serious threats to aquatic ecosystems and human health. The evaluation of eutrophication provides a theoretical basis and technical

Eutrophication of a River Impacted by Agricultural Activities (N’zi River, Côte D’ivoire)

Water eutrophication is a global environmental problem. In Côte d'Ivoire, no data is available to predict this phenomenon in rivers. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact of

Green Out of the Blue, or How (Not) to Deal with Overfed Oceans

Despite causing harmful impacts on coastal communities and biodiversity for a few decades, eutrophication of marine systems has only recently gained public visibility. Representing a major land-based

Effective Management of Closed Hypereutrophic Estuaries Requires Catchment-Scale Interventions

Increased nutrient loading associated with rapid population growth is the leading cause of deteriorating water quality in urbanized estuaries globally. Small estuaries are particularly sensitive to

Evaluation of water quality and risk of water level declines in semi arid wetland: case of study in the Macta marshes, Algeria

The main objective of this research is to diagnose the environment of the Macta marshes located in Northwestern Algeria by taking into account their wealth and ecological functioning as a site of

Year-long monitoring of phytoplankton community, toxigenic cyanobacteria, and total microcystins in a eutrophic tropical dam supplying the Mexico megacity

The Valle de Bravo dam is an important source of drinking water supply for the Mexico City Conurbation (>26 million inhabitants) and is also a hotspot for nautical sports, recreational fishing, and

Algal Bloom Occurrence and Effects in Russia

Eutrophication caused by the entry of nutrients into a water body may lead to algal bloom. Russia possesses the world’s second highest supply of renewable freshwater resources and has faced the



Restoration of eutrophic freshwater by managing internal nutrient loads. A review.

Agriculture and Eutrophication: Where Do We Go from Here?

The eutrophication of surface waters has become an endemic global problem. Nutrient loadings from agriculture are a major driver, but it remains very unclear what level of on-farm controls are

Causes, historical development, effects and future challenges of a common environmental problem: eutrophication

The impact of the presence of us humans as well as our activities to nature has led to over-exploitation of natural resources and to dramatic changes in land-use including the use of artificial

Eutrophication as a 'wicked' problem

Eutrophication, or the enrichment of lakes and reservoirs with plant nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, is an ongoing concern facing human societies around the world. Once thought to have

Nitrogen as the limiting nutrient for eutrophication in coastal marine ecosystems: Evolving views over three decades

Over the past two decades, a strong consensus has evolved among the scientific community that N is the primary cause of eutrophication in many coastal ecosystems.

Eutrophication of U.S. freshwaters: analysis of potential economic damages.

Human-induced eutrophication degrades freshwater systems worldwide by reducing water quality and altering ecosystem structure and function. We compared current total nitrogen (TN) and phosphorus (TP)

Coastal eutrophication: recent developments in definitions and implications for monitoring strategies

The word 'eutrophication' has its root in two Greek words: 'eu' which means 'well' and 'trope' which means 'nourishment'. The modem use of the word eutrophication is related to inputs and effects of
