What chemical build up causes a dead zone?



  1. 0 Votes

    Dead zones are the result of eutrophication- a decrease in oxygen caused by the growth of an ecosystem’s primary productivity (i.e. lots of plants like algae grow quickly in nutrient-enriched environments and use up all the oxygen). This is usually caused by nitrogen and phosphorous, which are present in agricultural runoff.
