Cycling of Phosphorus in the Mediterranean

All ecosystems rely on a particular nutrient that is in short supply. For most seas this is nitrogen, but it seems likely that for the Eastern Mediterranean it is phosphorus. Currently, there are a number of regulations limiting the amount of particular nutrients that countries can discharge into the Mediterranean, but these need to be updated if the ecology and economy of this area is to continue to thrive. The aim of the CYCLOPS Project is to get an idea of the effects of adding phosphorus to the Eastern Mediterranean. This knowledge can then be used to alter regulations, and develop new phosphorus-friendly technology.

The data sets collected during the CYCLOPS project (EVK-CT-1999-00009) are now avaialable on pulic access within this website.
