El cambio climático y la alteración de los lagos

The work has detected an increase in the atmospheric phosphorus that is deposited on the lakes, and the results prove changes in their chemical composition. Since the 80's, the human impact has produced also an increase in the atmospheric deposition of nitrogen.
