Nutrient Dynamics in the Baltic Sea
This chapter can in many ways be regarded as the core part of this book. It describes the CoastMab-model and how the model can be used to quantify the phosphorus fluxes regulating and describing the response of the Baltic Sea system to the phosphorus loading to the system. The model also predicts howmuch phosphorus there is in particulate form, the only form that can settle out due to gravity, and how much of the phosphorus that appears in dissolved form, the only form available for biouptake by phytoplankton.
