With continued concern for eutrophication in the lower Great Lakes, scientists, government and stakeholders continue to work together towards effective management solutions. In these freshwater systems, phosphorus is a main driver of algal blooms. Our ability to manage phosphorus in these systems to improve water quality is limited by our understanding of phosphorus flows and cycling along rivers and into large lakes. Join Philippe Van Cappellen, as he shares the latest research progress on phosphorus flows along the river-large lake continuum and how these are impacted by dams and nearshore biogeochemical cycling.
