Particulate inorganic phosphorus & particulate inorganic (GBR4 BGC v3.1 baseline)

Time step:

    Note: The near-real time GBR1 and GBR4 models (including hydro, river tracer and BGC) are currently paused at December 17th 2023 due to infrastructure damage from the recent flooding events around the Daintree River region (see here). These floods have damaged the real-time river temperature and flow sensors across surrounding catchments, and Queensland government is working to recover and restore these as quickly as possible. We will provide further updates when available.

    Phosphorus is a key nutrient required for organic growth. The main source of natural phosphorus is sedimentry rock.

    Particulate Inorganic Phosphorus

    Phosphorus ions that are absorbed onto particles. It is considered a particulate with the same properties as Mud.

    Particulate Inorganic Phosphorus sediment

    Phosphorus that is permanently removed from the system through burial of Particulate Inorganic Phosphorus in the sediment.
