Phosphorus release from sediments - a comparison of methods
Borovec, Jakub ; Brzáková, Martina
Phosphorus release rates from sediments were compared at two localities of Jordan Reservoir (Czech Republic) during the year. The release rates measured by incubation method were an order of magnitude higher comparing to the release rates calculated from phosphorus gradient in pore-water. A rapid decomposition of freshly settled seston at the sediment surface or just above the sediment was suggested to explain the differences.
Sedimenty jako dynamická zásoba fosforu ve stratifikované nádrži
Borovec, Jakub ; Hejzlar, Josef ; Brzáková, Martina ; Jan, J.
The ecosystem of the small, dimictic, and hypertrophic reservoir (Jordan Reservoir, Czech Republic) was studied from March 2001 till March 2004 to evaluate rates at selected pathways in the P-cycle. The rates were inferred from measurement of P mass-balance, sedimentation of seston, and P-release from sediments. A shift between seasonal changes of inflow and outflow P concentrations caused by P accumulation in the hypolimnion and the sediments was demonstrated. An important amount of P was temporally retained at the sediment surface during the summer stratification but a part of it was released back to water during the autumnal mixing, due to pore water „flushing out” and fast organic matter decomposition.
