Abstract

The authors discuss the increasing problem of nutrient runoff from farms and factories on the world's coastal ecosystems. Topics include degraded water quality from conditions such as algal blooms caused by fertilizer runoff, the environmental impact of reactive nitrogen sources produced by fossil fuel combustion and other processes beginning with the Industrial Revolution, the severity of coastal eutrophication in the U.S. and Asia, and ways to minimize coastal eutrophication.
