    Several studies have suggested that phosphorus is a limiting nutrient for seagrass and phytoplankton growth in much of Florida Bay. In fact soluble reactive phosphate concentrations in Florida Bay waters can be as low as a few nM. Sediments represent the largest phosphorus reservoir because Florida Bay sediments are dominated by carbonate which has a strong capacity to retain phosphorus.

    Overall Florida s geological history has been driven by changing sea levels which have influenced the production of carbonate bedrock siliciclastic input/transport hydrology and surface topography. During the last interglacial period the majority of south Florida was a shallow carbonate environment with some siliciclastic input.
