The extent of nitrogen and phosphorus inputs and their effects on algal productivity in Bayou Texar, Pensacola, Escambia County, Florida, has been under investigation. To date, results indicate Carpenter's Creek to be the major source of nutrient input in this estuarine bayou. In general, nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations are highest at the north end of the Bayou and decrease southward--a pattern which is directly related to carbon fixation rates, but inversely related to the extent of nitrogen fixation by the nitrogen fixing organisms in the Bayou. Preliminary results also suggest presence of phosphorus in the sediment muds and replenishment of water column phosphorus by phosphorus from the sediment. (Author)
