Abstract

The coastal area of the Netherlands is largely influenced by fresh water input from several large rivers that run through heavily populated areas in Western Europe. Due to agricultural land use, these rivers contain high concentrations of nutrients. The question is if and how (changes in??) these extra nutrients affect phytoplankton growth. The seasonality of phytoplankton is affected by nutrient dynamics and visa versa. Changes in nutrient balances have had large effects on the dynamics of phytoplankton growth and large changes in the ecosystem have been observed. Nutrient reduction efforts have shown some positive results, but the effects are still ongoing. Further reduction and close monitoring are therefore important measure in reaching pre-1980 ecosystem functioning and stability.
