Source apportionment of nitrogen and phosphorus inputs into the aquatic environment

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

Eutrophication is the excessive enrichment of waters with nutrients and the associated adverse biological effects, and it is still one of the major environmental problems across Europe. European waters are affected across the whole range from inland water bodies such as groundwater, rivers and lakes, to transitional and coastal waters and ecosystems in open seas. Eutrophication is caused by large anthropogenic inputs of the nutrients nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) to the aquatic environment from a range of societal sectors.
