The effect of sediment desiccation and re-wetting on phosphate adsorption and desorption properties was examined in two oligotrophic high mountain lakes (La Caldera and Río Seco, altitude ~3000 m) in the Sierra Nevada National Park, Spain. Decrease in phosphate sorption properties was observed in transects from the littoral zone to dry land (up to the high water mark) in both lakes concomitantly with loss of amorphous oxides of iron and aluminum as revealed by oxalate and dithionite extractions… CONTINUE READING
