Zak, D. & Hoffmann, C.C. 2021. Tre års undersøgelser af tab af næringsstoffer fra pumpelaget ved Aborg Minde Nor i Assens Kommune på Vestfyn. Aarhus Universitet, DCE – Nationalt Center for Miljø og Energi, 26 s. - Videnskabelig rapport nr. 468


The pumped area Aborg Minde (116 ha) on the island of Funen, close to the town Assens was investigated from April 2018 to April 2020. The aim was to measure and calculate the amount of water and nutrients being pumped out to the recipient Aborg Minde Nor. Total amount of nitrogen pumped out in the 3 monitoring periods (i.e. 3 years) was 29.1 tons TN (83.6 kg N ha-1 year-1), and total amount of phosphorus pumped out was 0.71 tons TP (2.04 kg P ha-1 year-1). The amount of sulfate pumped out was 917 tons (2.6 tons SO42- ha-1 år-1).
