The authors applied a spatially referenced Bayesian state-space model to conduct an analysis on how in-lake (Erie) TP concentrations are affected by the adjacent river basin. In general, the paper is adequately written (this means that the authors could improve the manuscript to succeed a smoother experience for the reader) and I find their effort decent in terms of methodological analysis. The presentation of the reults is satisfactory, with convincing explanations when needed.
Line 32: I suggest to add one recent and very relevant reference after Schneider and Blaha, 2020: Mellios, N. K., Moe, S. J. and Laspidou, C.: Using Bayesian hierarchical modelling to capture cyanobacteria dynamics in Northern European lakes, Water Research, 186, 116356.
Line 37: Please use 2 as superscript in km2. Correct t throughout the manuscript.
Line 65: My opinion is to erase "within".
Line 66: Please use "it does not" instead of "it is doeas not".
Line 79: Please use "extend from" instead of "range from".
Line 111: Please erase the "the".
Line 188: Use "values" instead of "vales".
Line 190: After "were collected" use ";" instead of comma in order to make the sentence smoother for the reader.
Line 291: Please use "also" instead of "too".
To this end, I recommend the manuscript for publication with minor revisions.
