Changing climate and Phosphorus transfers

Mary Ockenden and coauthors brought new insight into the estimation of future phosphorus transfers under a changing climate using high temporal resolution data in this thought-provoking manuscript published in Science of The Total Environment. An increased risk of pollutant transfers from agricultural land under climate change was underlined with over 80% of phosphorus being transported by high flow events. The average phosphorus loads may increase by 9% by 2050 with higher rainfall volume and intensity.Ockenden
