Changes to global nitrogen and phosphorus cycles due to anthropogenic activities, including agriculture, transport, soil and land-use change, have led to an increase in nutrient fluxes to the hydrosphere. Concomitantly, climate change with the overall associated increase in temperatures and increased frequency of drought and flooding events, has modified the timing of nutrient delivery to inland waters and the rates of biogeochemical transformations. These changes in nutrient cycling affect the local biota dynamics and lead to issues including eutrophication, hypoxia, harmful algal blooms, and overall decrease in biodiversity.

The aim of this Research Topic is to cover recent and novel research on nutrient dynamics along the land to freshwater to marine continuum. This Research Topic will specifically address how human-derived global changes are influencing the transport and transformations of nutrients in the hydrosphere, the implications for aquatic ecosystem structure and function and the solutions that can mitigate ecological degradation.

The scope of the Research Topic will be multi-scaled from:
1) Field measurements and experiments;
2) Hydrodynamic-nutrient modeling;
3) Eutrophication mitigation solutions; and,
4) Potential of new nutrient recovery technologies for closing nutrient loops in the modern environment.

We welcome manuscripts bridging gaps on our understanding of nutrient dynamics in a changing world from the local ecosystem scale to the global scale centred around freshwater but spanning the soil-to-ocean continuum. We are looking for both original research, short commentaries on new findings, and large review-type manuscripts.


Keywords: Nutrients, eutrophication, anthropocene, soil-to-ocean continuum
