ALGAE & EUTROPHICATION
from the surrounding water during photosynthesis.
Chlorophyll…….. one species of algae ) Zonation
Aphotic Zone or Hypolimnion
The most important aspects are C N & P (sunlight).
Given the generic chemical composition of algae protoplasm:
C106 H263 O110 N16 P1
C: 106 x 12 = 1272 (35.8%)
How would this relate to an algal bloom?
The algae production would be theoretically limited to 1775 grams.
