Input pathways of phosphorus into the Warnow River and measures to reduced riverine phosphorus loads are assessed in the PhosWaM project. Individual phosphorus fractions are considered. Finally, the contribution of the Warnow River to the phosphorus budget of the Bay of Mecklenburg is evaluated by marine biogeochemical model simulations. The results of these model simulations are published here.
The project PhosWaM (FKZ 033W042) is one of 15 joint research projects within the BMBF fund measure "Regional Water Resources Management for Sustainable Protection of Waters in Germany" (ReWaM). ReWaM is part of the BMBF funding priority "Sustainable Water Management" (Nachhaltiges Wassermanagement, NaWaM) in framework program "Research for Sustainable Development" (Forschung für Nachhaltige Entwicklung, FONA).
The simulations were performed at the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HLRN).
