Abstract The mathematical model was developed to evaluate the impact of various phosphorus management strategies on nuisance growths of the filamentous alga Cladophora glomerata. The model was supported by intensive ecological studies and an extensive field monitoring program. The results of simulating spatial and seasonal variation in algal biomass and associated nutrient parameters agree well with field observations. The calibrated model is used to predict the response of the system under study to a demonstration phosphorus removal program. Implications to large scale phosphorus management strategies are discussed.
