Total phosphorus distribution over the Baltic Sea sub-regions


A quantitative relation has been revealed between the input and concentration of total phosphorus in different sub-regions of the Baltic Sea. This relation has been used to calculate the total phosphorus content of water in the Baltic Sea in 1990, 1995, 2000, and 2006.
