Modelling organic phosphorus transformations in aquatic systems.

This paper is divided into two sections and reviews descriptions of organic phosphorus components and associated transformation processes as they are used in mechanistic models of aquatic systems. The first section reviews descriptions of organic phosphorus components in biogeochemical models of aquatic systems, which is followed by a review of frequently used model formulations for important processes affecting organic phosphorus in lakes, rivers, sediments, marine systems and sewage treatment plants. The second section contains a brief review on how to embed organic phosphorus submodels into biogeochemical models of aquatic systems. The processes considered as well as the process formulations used for describing different aquatic systems are analysed. Also, the selection of a suitable description in building a more universal phosphorus model applicable to a variety of aquatic systems is discussed. Finally, a discussion of the historic development of models for different systems is given including conclusions about useful future directions of model development for different applications.
