Total phosphorus in lakes

Topics: ,
The map shows the mean annual concentrations of total phosphorus (TP) as mg/L TP in European lakes and reservoirs measured at Eionet-Water Lake monitoring stations during 2011. Total phosphorus includes all phosphorus components in lake water: phosphate dissolved organic phosphorus and particulate phosphorus in algal and bacterial cells, as well as in mineral particles (e.g. clay). For most countries the concentration values are based on measurements over the whole year, but for some countries the annual mean actually represents only the growing season (due to ice cover in winter).
