My topic is eutrophication, and I have the citation list already.

Thank you so much!

Literature Review
Eutrophication is the process by which a water body becomes overly enriched with
minerals and nutrients. These results from the deposits of minerals and rich nutrients from rivers
into such waterbodies and runoff from various sources such as agricultural farms and industrial
plants. When this happens, plant and animal life can be richly supplied with nutrients which help
fuel their rapid growth and proliferation. When this happens, plants such as algae grow in
tremendous numbers, beyond their natural growth patterns and this results in oxygen depletion
within the bodies of water. Algal blooms and suffocation of other plant and animal life are the
results of the eutrophication achieve.
Various studies have been conducted on the topic to determine the various facets of the
matter. Scientists have conducted experiments and used simulation models to determine exactly
what contributes to eutrophication and how the enrichment of the water happens over time (Yan
et al., 2016). These types of studies are important since they helped scientists determine the
various ways that the issue can be solved effectively and how to sustainably tackle
eutrophication in a manner that is beneficial to the water ecosystem (Orderud, & Vogt, 2013).
This paper reviews the literature on the issue so as to determine what research has found on the
matter, what the gaps might be and how various scientists complement each other and possibly
Cerco, & Noel conducted a study in which they used the CE‐QUAL‐ICM on a 21-year
simulation of the waters of the Chesapeake Bay on water quality. This model is part of a larger
one that includes a combination of various aspects such as atmospheric deposition, and various



hydrodynamics. The researchers found that light attenuation in the water deteriorated from
approximately 1993 throughout the rest of the simulation and the significant factor, in this case,
was physical processes such as stratification and that external loads were not as important to the
water quality and composition. These findings are important as they help demonstrate and clarify
the factor that affects water quality. Rather than external loads, the scientists determined that it
was, in fact, the stratification of the solid as well as other physical factors.
On the other hand, Chislock, M. F., Doster, E., Zitomer, R. A., & Wilson (2013), noted
that eutrophication is caused as lakes age and the limiting factors for the growth of algae are
tampered with in a manner that makes them tip in favor of the algae. The authors, in this case,
agree with Cerco, & Noel in part when they note that as lakes age, sediments do form and these
lead to the stratification of the bed upon which the water lies, resulting in eutrophication.
However, their study goes ahead to indicate that the process is accelerated by h...
