Our results confirm that the anthropogenic input of P is the main reason for the deterioration of the Lake Peipsi ecosystem.

Detrending was done to avoid coincidental correlation of the analysed data, which may occur purely because of a common long-term trend even if the series are not related to each other. Results The total 210Pb activity in Lake Vortsjarv sediments (Fig. 1a) showed an irregular profile: a distinctive 25 down-core decrease within the uppermost 22 cm, then an increase, then another downward decline below the 27 cm level. At 94 cm core depth, the total 210 Pb and the supporting 226Ra reached an equilibrium that corresponds to ca.
