Lakes worldwide are accidentally fed nutrients, mainly phosphorus – a joy to algae, but it is the kickstart for a down-spiraling cascade of pollution. Learn in this session how eutrophication like this can cause a stir in greenhouse gas emissions, how we could kill the cause, and regain material to close the loop of the phosphorus cycle in is lakes.
