Expressing the Phosphorus Loading Concept in Probabilistic Terms

Journal Article

Data from North Temperate lakes were used to estimate the uncertainty of a phosphorus loading model. A number of graphical representations of the uncertainty were developed to demonstrate the importance of including probabilistic information in phosphorus loading calculations. Key words: limnology, lake management, phosphorus, eutrophication, models, statistics, probability, loading, lakes, prediction
