This book deals with the processes behind cycles of the phosphate and nitrogen compounds in sediment and the phosphate equilibria between the sediment and the overlying water. In most waters, excessive concentrations of these compounds causes eutrophication: rapid, choking growth of algae. The chapters of this book probe the chemicals involved in considerable detail, and offer the complete understanding needed to remediate or prevent pollution problems.

In The Press

From the reviews:

"This book is essential reading to anyone interested in lake nutrient dynamics, or in the palaeoenvironmental interpretation of sediment chemistry. … I can recommend this book as a useful text for anyone with an interest in general palaeolimnology, providing a thorough review of current practical knowledge about nutrient dynamics in lakes, and how this ties in with sediment composition. It is also valuable reading to anyone starting out to study lake sediment chemistry … ." (John Boyle, Journal of Paleolimnology, Vol. 38, 2007)
