Over the past decades, Lake Taihu, a large shallow lake in China, has been heavily loaded with nutrients. This has resulted in a loss of most of the submerged macrophytes and blooms of toxic and scum-forming cyanobacteria. Attempts to recover water quality have so far failed. The aim of this project is to identify the critical nutrient loading necessary for the recovery of the lake.
