Nitrogen Biogeochemical Cycle (kinda)

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Is this following statement true?

    Extensive fertilization results in a shift in the the coupled equilibria of the Nitrogen Biogeochemical Cycle, driving into run off rivers, lakes, and oceans. This is a major factor behind the plume of algae growth, in the Gulf of Mexico

    2. Relevant equations
    none


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I think it is true because, fertilization increases concentration and thus would shift equlibrium in that direction, but am not sure if theres some kind of flaw in my logic. Maybe theres a better way of proveing it?
