The accumulation of inorganic phosphate in lake sediments and a possible following release is due to the adsorption of phosphate onto Fe(OOH) and, especially in hard waters, to the precipitation of apatite. Attempts are made to quantify both processes. For the quantification of the P adsorbed, Pads, onto Fe(OOH) the Freundlich adsorption isotherm, Pads=A(o-P)B, gave good results. The constants A and B could be quantified. Constant A appeared to depend on the pH and the Ca2+ and Mg2… CONTINUE READING
