Organic N and P in eutrophic fjord sediments – rates of mineralization and consequences for internal nutrient loading


Nutrient release from the sediments in shallow eutrophic estuaries may counteract reductions of the external nutrient load and prevent or prolong ecosystem recovery. The magnitude and temporal dynamics of this potential source, termed internal nutrient loading, is poorly understood. We quantified the internal nutrient loading driven by microbial… (More)
