Event Details

Dr Johanna Laakso of Natural Resources Institute Finland (Luke) presents the results of work on the potential of soils and sediments for storing phosphorus.

Constructed wetlands and ponds are installed to trap suspended material and particulate phosphorus (P) in agricultural runoff. This study investigated whether the P speciation and sorption capacity of source soils differ from sediments and whether dredging of sediment changes its characteristics.

For more information about the seminar please contact speaker Dr Johanna Laakso directly (johanna.laakso@luke.fi)

All students, staff and colleagues are welcome!
