Abstract: Excess nutrients in the Gulf of Mexico are related to at least three important environmental problems: episodic oxygen depletion, sea grass decline, and shifts in composition of biological communities. Important sources of nutrients include: sewerage treatment plants, storm water runoff from urban and suburban areas, agronomic and animal agriculture, and atmospheric deposition.
