Latest Eutrophication Stories
The origin of the massive green tide of algae that nearly wrecked the Beijing Olympics sailing regatta has been discovered by scientists.
Protecting drinking water and preventing harmful coastal "dead zones", as well as eutrophication in many lakes, will require reducing both nitrogen and phosphorus pollution.
An international group of scientists is renewing calls for policymakers to reduce both nitrogen and phosphorus when attempting to alleviate eutrophication â€“ or nutrient pollution problems â€“ in fresh and coastal waters. In the February 20 edition of Science, the researchers argue that dual-nutrient reduction strategies are likely to be more successful due to complex interactions between nitrogen and phosphorus in fresh and coastal water ecosystems.
So far environmental protection of the Baltic Sea has not been successful, even though a wealth of research information exists to support such protection.
Scientists have found lichens can give insight into nitrogen air pollution effects on Sierra Nevada and San Bernardino mountain ecosystems, and protecting them provides safeguards for less sensitive species.
