The influence of bacteria on carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorus cycling processes in lakes and their influence on lake health is explored.
Early Lake Erie region settlers viewed the Black Swamp as an obstacle to be overcome. One researcher says bringing part of its wetlands back may help the region, not hurt it.
The IL Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy is generating interest and improving water quality by reducing nutrient runoff into Illinois watersheds.
Beaver Creek Wetlands are a unique wetland system primarily made of fens. Environmental monitoring consists primarily of biotic monitoring but has also included chemical monitoring.
A modeling effort led partly by the Nature Conservancy assesses what needs to be done to achieve a 40 percent reduction in Lake Erie phosphorus.
Federal agencies are preparing for a price drop in nutrient sensor tech that could bring a boom in the number of instruments deployed across the nation.
In early 2016, the governments of the United States and Canada called for a reduction of Lake Erie phosphorus loads by 40 percent. The goal is a lofty one, and new research led by experts at the...
A wavelet analysis led by Youngstown State University researchers reveals phosphorus load trends of Lake Erie’s western basin since the 1970s.
Climate change, phosphorus buildup and healthy algae populations are some of the ingredients which could lead to a doubling of harmful algal blooms in Lake Erie in the next century, according to a release from Ohio State...
A University of Vermont-led study finds that streambank erosion might not contribute as much phosphorus to Lake Champlain as previously thought.
A study from Columbia University and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute details a more complex marine phosphorus cycle in which phytoplankton play a vital part.
