Statistical models for the estimation of net phosphorus sedimentation in lakes

  title={Statistical models for the estimation of net phosphorus sedimentation in lakes},
  author={Yves T. Prairie},
  journal={Aquatic Sciences},
The empirical adequacy of four phosphorus mass-balance models is evaluated with respect to how the prediction error variance of the corresponding net sedimentation parameters is propagated in the steadystate equations. Using the criterion of minimum propagation error variance (PEV), different groups of lakes can be distinguished for which different empirical equations are used to predict net phosphorus sedimentation. The classification reduced prediction error significantly and also reflected… CONTINUE READING
