Abstract: The phosphorus load to the oceans from land started to increase since around 1950 when man started to mine phosphorus-mineral from phosphorus-rich soils and bedrock. The increased use of phosphorus fertilizers in agriculture together with the growth of coastal cities increased the load of phosphorus to the coastal ocean where plankton production flourished. In the Baltic Sea the increase in plankton production resulted in an increased frequency of harmful cyanobacterial blooms and in expanding a... more
