The adsorption-release behavior of sediment phosphorus in a typical "grass-algae" coexisting lake and its influence mechanism during the transition sensitive period.

Chemosphere 2022 Aug 8:135903. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

State Key Laboratory of Environmental Criteria and Risk Assessment, Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences, Beijing, 100012, China; Institute of Water Environment Research, Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences, Beijing, 100012, China.

In the early stage of eutrophication, the coexistence of "grass and algae" in lakes is obvious. Understanding the P sorption-desorption behavior in natural sediments during the ecologically sensitive transition period has important scientific value for predicting the deterioration of lake ecosystems and formulating restoration measures, but the related mechanisms are still unclear. In this study, the analysis results of sedimentary dissolved organic matter (DOM) fractions, extractable Fe (hydr)oxide fractions and P adsorption experiments showed that sedimentary DOM fractions, especially the tyrosine-like protein fractions and microbial humic-like fractions, played a part in determining the EPC and K values of sediments in the plateau lake environment.
