Long term phosphorus in the Thames, Maumee and Yangtze rivers basins

Thanks to Matt Scholtz from the US EPA Sustainable Phosphorus Alliance, here is a video talking head summary of our recent paper on long term in Nature Geosciences.   The doi of the paper is doi:10.1038/ngeo2693 and you can click on this for a link.  The take home point from this reminds us of the slow speed that P moves through the land water system.

Thanks to Danilo

Danilo Almeida had spent the last 12 months working with the team in the lab on organic phosphorus mobilisation in soils. Danilo is completing his PhD on the effect of tropical grasses on soil phosphorus availability to soybean, in collaboration with São Paulo State University, Brazil. It's been a pleasure to work with you Danilo. Dan left me a bottle of Cachaca - so it looks like a summer of Caipirinha cocktails!  

Thank-you 

Phil
