Winter Nitrate and Phosphate levels in the Western Irish Sea in 1991
Gillooly, M; Nixon, E; McMahon, T; O'Sullivan, G; Choiseul, V
This study of nitrate, phosphate and salinity levels in the western Irish Sea indicates that the distribution of nutrient levels can be explained by taking into account the known physical and hydrological features of the area. There is a clear inverse relationship between nitrate and salinity data with nitrate levels decreasing rapidly moving offshore. The distribution of phosphate levels is more complex and appears to be influenced by multiple point source inputs and inflows from the Celtic Sea.
