Vansjø-Hobøl

Key findings

  • High chlorophyll concentrations, driven by phosphorous pollution from agriculture, and increased water temperatures are key stressors causing eutrophication and cyanobacteria blooms in the Vansjø-Hobøl basin.
  • Phosphorous loading is likely to increase in the future under moderate to extreme climate changes, as a result of increased precipitation and run-off.
  • Alterations to agricultural practices, such as reduced fertilisation rates and improved erosion control, may help mitigate phosphorous loading under climate change.
