Lake Superior has fewer dissolved nutrients relative to its water volume than the other Great Lakes and so is less productive in terms of fish populations and is an oligotrophic lake. This is a result of the underdeveloped soils found in its relatively small watershed. [17]Coordinates: 47°42′N 87°30′W / °N . Phosphorus absorption is about % efficient, as calcium, iron, and zinc tend to complex with phosphorus in the stomach, thus reducing absorption. Vitamin D tends to promote the absorption of both phosphorus and calcium from the intestine. Excretion through the urine regulated the body’s level of phosphorus.

    Surprisingly, even the multi-agency Great Waters Program (, ), the National Dry Deposition Network (Flicks, et al. ), and the National Atmospheric Deposition Program/ National Trends Network (NADP, ) do not include total phosphorus monitoring from atmospheric sources, in spite of the importance of phosphorus to many.

These global patterns of nutrient emission and deposition (N:P) are in turn closely reflected in the water chemistry of naturally oligotrophic lakes (r 2 =p Cited by: Large natural body of standing fresh water formed when water from precipitation, land runoff, or groundwater flow fills a depression in the earth created by glaciation, earth movement, volcanic activity, or a giant meteorite.

In a survey of microcystins in water and fish in two temperate Great Lakes (Erie and Ontario), the highest microcystin concentrations in fish muscle observed for Lake Erie were for alewives (– μg/kg) and northern pike (– μg/kg) and for Lake Ontario were walleye (– μg/kg), white bass (– μg/kg) and.

Arsenic concentrations in freshwaters may vary by several orders of magnitude depending on the source, availability and chemistry of the environment (Smedley and Kinniburgh, ).Typically As concentrations in freshwaters are less than 10 μg L −1 but range between and μg L −1 in rivers and between lakes ().Cited by: Anthropogenic impacts on the Great Lakes system.

Some scientists have categorized trophic status according to phosphorus concentration. Lakes with phosphorus concentrations below mg/L are classified as oligotrophic, phosphorus concentrations between and mg/L are indicative of mesotrophic lakes, and eutrophic lakes have phosphorus concentrations exceeding mg/L (Muller.

In a study of five oligotrophic, softwater embayments with natural anoxia along the Georgian Bay (Great Lakes) coast in Ontario, Canada, cyanobacteria dominated three of the five and were 14–27% of the phytoplankton biomass in the other two embayments (Powe et al., ).

Since the mids, these blooms have returned despite a period of relatively stable external P inputs.

Most of the point sources were either input directly to the lakes or near their shorelines (direct loading): for Lake Superior 71% of the total input from point sources occurred in the marginal areas, compared to ∼58% for Lakes Erie and Ontario, and % for Lakes Michigan and Huron (Figure 4).

For Lake Erie, >40% of all of its point Cited by: Phosphorus-sensitive lakes are generally those which are greater than 10 hectares in size, stratify during the summer, and have water flushing rates of less than 6 times per year.

Several states are adopting a watershed approach to target nonpoint source control strategies (USEPA, ). To account for this potential sampling bias, a distribution of lake areal hydrologic loadings rates, i.e., lake inflow divided by lake surface area, obtained from a phosphorus mass balance analysis of lakes (i.e., median = 38 (11–) L m −2 d −1) was multiplied by likely t-DOC concentrations based on stream surveys in Wisconsin Cited by: In the Great Lakes of North America some $10 million dollars were spent between and to quantify the relative impacts of point versus non-point sources.

That exercise proved enormously successful and specific policies were adopted for nutrient control in each lake basin that reflected the relative contributions from each type of source. Phosphorus is a common pollutant in surface waters. When phosphorus concentrations are too high, it causes excessive growth of algae.

But different forms of phosphorus have different impacts on water quality in Lake Erie. In nature, phosphorus is found mostly in the form of phosphate ions— PO 4 3 − \text {PO}_4^{3-} PO 4 3 − start text, P, O, end text, start subscript, 4, end subscript, start superscript, 3, minus, end ate compounds are found in sedimentary rocks, and as the rocks weather—wear down over long time periods—the phosphorus they contain slowly leaches into surface water.

weathering, erosion, and leaching. Phosphorus may be released from lake and reservoir bottom sediments during seasonal overturns. Point sources: Sewage treatment plants provide most of the available phosphorus to surface water bodies.

A normal adult excretes - g of phosphorus per day. Additional phosphorus originates from the use of File Size: KB. Phosphorus is a chemical element found on Earth in numerous compound forms, such as the phosphate ion (PO), located in water, soil and sediments. The quantities of phosphorus in soil are generally small, and this often limits plant growth.

That is why people often apply phosphate fertilisers on farmland. Animals absorb phosphates by eating plants or plant-eating animals. Total phosphorus (TP) is a better way to measure phosphorus in lakes because it includes both ortho-phosphate and the phosphorus in plant and animal fragments suspended in lake water.

TP levels are more stable and an annual mean can tell you a lot about the lake. Municipal waste treatment plant effluents, for example, have an average total nitrogen to total phosphorus ratio of about to 1 whereas natural waters usually have a ratio 1n excess of 15 to 1.

The relative abundance of phosphorus provided 1n municipal effluents could change a lake from phosphorus-limited to nitrogen-limited.

After extensive study in the early s, a consensus developed that phosphorus was the nutrient most responsible for nutrient over-enrichment in freshwater lakes (Edmondson ; Vollenweider ; Schindler ), and since then better control of phosphorus loadings to lakes has gone a long way toward mitigating freshwater eutrophication (Carpenter et al.

Lake Erie Binational Phosphorus Reduction Strategy 5. Maintain an oligotrophic state, relative algal biomass and algal species consistent with healthy aquatic ecosystems, in the open waters of Lakes Superior, Michigan, Huron and Ontario.

Maintain mesotrophic conditions in the open waters of the western and central basins. Two case studies were examined to test the guidance framework for phosphorus. For the first, on Lake Simcoe, Ontario, a baseline TP level of micrograms per litre of water was set because these are ideal levels for a cold water fishery.

So, the lake was placed in the oligotrophic trigger range ( micrograms per litre of water). if you were to introduce nutrients into an oligotrophic lake there would be massive algae blooms along with death of sensative fish like trout and bass that are use to living in oligotrophic ecosystem.

This would also lower the quality of the drinking water in the oligotrophic lake.Human activities alter the phosphorus cycle chiefly by adding more available phosphorus where little was available previously.

Phosphate‐containing detergents used in the s were carried by sewage systems into rivers and lakes and were a boon to algae and microorganisms, which responded with exuberant flushes of growth.
