Abstract: Sulfur and phosphorus are important elements in the geochemical cycle. Both their environmental behavior and their coupled relationship are intertwined to regulate the release of endogenous pollution from sediment in polluted rivers and lakes. This paper summarizes the environmental behavior of sulfur and phosphorous as well as the latest research progress on their coupling mechanisms. The study also notes that sulfur-driven eutrophication is an important type of water eutrophication in polluted rivers and lakes. Lastly, we discuss future perspectives on related research in terms of coupled S-cycling with other biogeochemical cycles, which can provide referential significance for the treatment of endogenous pollution in polluted rivers and lakes.

Key words: sediment, endogenous sulfur, endogenous phosphorus, eutrophication
