Phosphorus in Lake Erie Sediments Contributes Little to Harmful Algal Blooms
Some people may be worried about how much phosphorus is already found in the lake, bound to sediments on the lake bottom. Is there already so much phosphorus in the lake that it’s too late to fix the problem so blooms will continue regardless of efforts to reduce runoff from the land? Turns out that’s not likely.
