Phosphorus in soil, water and sediment: an overview

  title={Phosphorus in soil, water and sediment: an overview},
  author={Hans E. Holtan and Lars Kamp-Nielsen and Arne Oddvar Stuanes},
The geochemistry, availability and abundance of different forms of phosphorus in soil, water and sediments are reviewed. The present knowledge of phosphorus pathways in ecosystems and their regulation is discussed. In a drainage basin, anthropogenic phosphorus is brought into the system mainly as fertilizers and detergents. Sewer systems and outwash processes transfer the phosphorus from the terrestrial environment to the aquatic part of the ecosystem where an accumulation occurs in the… CONTINUE READING
