Unformatted text preview: (CHNOPS). Describe the major difference between the phosphorus cycle and other nutrient cycles, in this context. What are the ramifications for lake water quality with respect to eutrophication? The phosphorus cycle does not have a gaseous phase. If phosphorus is the limiting nutrient, it may cause eutrophication by providing the nutrients required to build cells; it can be difficult to remove it from a lake because it has no volatile form and thus requires physical measures to remove it (inflows/outflows/dredging)....
