Abstract. Estuarine sediments are key sites for removal of phosphorus (P) from rivers and the open sea. Vivianite, an Fe(II)-P mineral, can act as a major sink for P in Fe-rich coastal sediments. In this study, we investigate the burial of P in the Ore Estuary in the northern Baltic Sea. We find much higher rates of P burial at our five study sites (up to ∼0.145 mol m - 2 yr - 1 ) when compared to more southern coastal areas in the Baltic Sea with similar rates of sedimentation. Detailed study… CONTINUE READING
