    Atmospheric circulation patterns over the North Sea occasionally result in episodes of high concentrations of various contaminants. Synergistic chemical effects can act to enhance the deposition of nitrogen during these events resulting in highly episodic nitrogen inputs to the North Sea. Two such episodes are described and their causes interpreted. The problems of devising sampling strategies to quantify these events and assess their effects on phytoplankton communities are discussed.
