Nutrients in Soils (P and N)

 

I think I would have understood the fractionation techniques to a much greater degree if I would have studied P chemistry in soils to a greater extent. Many of these techniques for sediments were built on methods for extraction of P for testing of agricultural soils, which were developed from knowledge of P content in soils.

Phytoplankton and Algae

 

I became highly interested in this area in taking the limnology course. It seems that it would be pretty important for us to have a general understanding of phytoplankton and algae, since they are so critical in aquatic systems (base of the food chain but can become problematic in abundance).

Organic Matter

 

It seems that organic matter is an area that is critical for nutrient availability, as continual recycling of this material provides nutrients on a regular basis. This is one area that I felt needed more focus on in future P fractionation work.

Oxygen

 

From reading of local literature and listening to Jerry Miller, it seems that DO is a pretty critical parameter. Understanding it to a greater degree should help us understand motives for collection of data.
