The series of publications authored by Dr. S.A. Ostroumov (M.V. Lomonosov Moscow University) discovered the ecosystem’s machinery that functions as a hi-tech mechanism to make water clear and pure, safe for human consumption. This was a secret of water quality and sustainability. This secret was discovered. In the table given at some of the sites mentioned below, the reference to the key publications are given. Also, examples are given of the papers that cited Dr. S. Ostroumov’s works. These works were cited by experts and scientists from countries as diverse as U.S.A., France, U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Australia, Argentina, China, India…
The achievement that was cited:
The ecological theory of how aquatic ecosystem and the biological community function toward improving water quality (both in freshwater and in seawater) was formulated in the well-cited paper of a scientist of Moscow University. This theory, inter alia, discovered and analyzed – to a better degree than it was done before – the multi-aspect role of aquatic organisms that are filter-feeders. This achievement was used by the authors of the new paper co-authored by scientists of Poland, China, Korea. They used the theory to better analyze their new data on marine bivalve mollusk, marine mussels Mytilus.

Innovative conceptualization of how ecosystems improve water quality (water self-purification)
[Item 1 in the Series of files entitled: Legendary Discoveries];
There are a lot questions that are of key interest in our studies of ecological mechanisms that regulate, modify and form water quality in surface aquatic ecosystems. These questions are listed below.
Besides microorganisms, do the other organisms play a key role in improving water quality?
Which processes are the main ones which contribute to water self-purification?
Which organisms play key roles in improving water quality in aquatic ecosystems?
Which organisms, freshwater or marine are more involved in improving water quality?
How biological, chemical and physical processes are interacting in ecosystem in improving water quality?
Is it possible to organize a multitude of factors and processes of water self-purification into a few groups (categories, blocks)?
Is the self-purification potential of an aquatic ecosystem a certain constant or a labile parameter?
Is the mechanism of water self-purification vulnerable to external impact on the aquatic ecosystem, e.g. to the impact of chemical pollution with synthetic chemicals?
