Abstract:

This paper discusses the bioavailability of Lake Erie tributary sediment phosphate as determined by chemical extraction and algal uptake. This report includes the following 1 Review of the literature on procedures to estimate biologically available sediment phosphate BSP including sequential chemical extraction, resin extraction, P desorption and various algal bioassay techniques 2 Sequential chemical extraction of P from suspended sediments in Lake Erie drainage Basin tributaries 3 Algal uptake of sediment P from several suspended sediments from Lake Erie Basin tributaries 4 Conclusions from the project studies and 5 Extrapolation and implications for the Lake Erie Basin.
