Particulate organic carbon (POC) formation and phosphorus/iron supply ratios along pH and trophic gradients in lakes

The primary goal of the research is to compare supply rates of   phosphate and labile iron using a method that captures labile iron   and phosphate over a 24-hour period to algal species composition.   This will help determine whether variation in the phosphorus/iron   supply ratio affects the composition of the algal community.    (nutrient loading); (particulate organic carbon); (algal bloom);   (algal blooms); (eutrophication); (POC); (particulate organic   carbons); (POCs); (POC's); (loading); (loadings); (phosphorous);   (phosphates); (phosphate); (iron); (algae)
