New research paper examines salinization as a driver of eutrophication symptoms in an urban lake

Tuesday, August 2, 2022

Research presented in a paper authored by ERG member Jovana Radosavljevic published in Science of the Total Environment demonstrates that increasing lake salinization linked to urban growth causes water quality deterioration usually ascribed to the proliferation of algae driven by nutrient enrichment. Salinization strengthens water column stratification which, in turn, results in more oxygen depletion of the hypolimnion, and more internal phosphorus loading in the lake. The findings indicate that urban lake management strategies should consider the impacts of salinization on water quality, including those that traditionally are associated with increasing external nutrient loading.
