Title: The extent of phosphorus release in the Norfolk Broads
Author: Roselyn H. Jackson
Document Type: Monograph
During 1991, additional laboratory experiments and analysis of interstitial phosphorus, ferrous iron and sulphide concentrations were carried out on sediment cores from various broads to further investigate the extent of sediment phosphorus release and, if possible, to determine the factors affecting it. In particular, sediment from Cockshoot, Cromes and Ranworth Broads was studied with the aim of finding a sediment which might be suitable for large scale ferric dosing. In order to obtain some idea of the potential for release in different sediments, analysis of total phosphorus, iron and sulphide content of sediments throughout the Broads was continued, together with analysis of the phosphorus fractions in the sediment.
