Phosphorus (P) is an essential nutrient for marine organisms. Its burial in hypoxic and anoxic marine basins is still incompletely understood. Recent studies suggest that P can be sequestered in sediments of such basins as reduced iron (Fe)-P but the exact phase and the underlying mechanisms that lead to its formation are unknown. In this study, we investigated sediments from the deepest basin in the Baltic Sea, the Landsort Deep (site M0063), that were retrieved during the Integrated Ocean… CONTINUE READING
