is called eutrophication . In addition to the impacts on aquatic life, excess nutrients can also degrade aesthetics of recreational waters [2,3,4], and increase the incidence of harmful algal blooms, which may endanger human health through the production of toxins that can contaminate recreational and drinking water resources[5,6]. Consequently, the reduc-tion of just one nutrient upstream to control eutrophication can allow the export of other nutrients downstream where they may stimulate algal production. The tech-nology exists for controlling eutrophication, but many challenges remain for under-standing and managing this global environmental problem. URL.
Cultural or artificial eutrophication occurs when human activity introduces increased amounts of these nutrients, which speed up plant growth and eventually choke the lake of all of its animal life. In nature, eutrophication is a common phenomenon in freshwater ecosystems and is really a part of the normal aging process of many lakes and ponds. In a healthy lake the nutrients occur in small amounts. But in large quantities, they can cause a major water pollution problem. Too many nutrients stimulate the rapid growth of plants and algae, clogging waterways and sometimes creating blooms of toxic blue-green algae. This . For example, the nutrients from the land can be washed away in a flood and deposited into a lake or a river. These water bodies become overly enriched with nutrients, enabling the excessive growth of algae and other simple plant life. The process of natural eutrophication is much slower when compared to the process of anthropogenic eutrophication.
The major nutrients that cause eutrophication and other adverse impacts associated with nutrient over-enrichment are nitrogen and phosphorus. In this chapter, we discuss why nitrogen is of paramount importance in both causing and controlling eutrophication in coastal marine ecosystems.

It also provides guidance on the nature and extent of monitoring programs that may be required to support eutrophication analyses.

SyntaxTextGen not activatedPdf definition is - the process by which a body of water becomes enriched in dissolved nutrients (such as phosphates) that stimulate the growth of aquatic plant life usually resulting in the depletion of dissolved oxygen.
eutrophication Has Greek Roots.Eutrophication, the gradual increase in the concentration of phosphorus, nitrogen, and other plant nutrients in an aging aquatic ecosystem such as a lake. Cultural eutrophication is caused by water pollution and is a serious threat to freshwater and coastal ecosystems.“Eutrophication: causes, consequences & control” provides the latest information on many ebook aspects of the processes of natural and accelerated eutrophication in major aquatic ecosystems around the world.
This book offers a cutting-edge resource for researchers and students alike who are studying eutrophication in various ecosystems.
