Water Quality and Biological Response to Water Quality of Embayments to Lake Ontario -- (Student Research Project)

This project will build on a previous study on controls on the water   quality and food webs of three Lake Ontario embayments: Little Sodus   Bay, Juniper Pond and South Sandy Pond. Water samples will be   collected monthly from the embayments and tributaries entering and   leaving the embayments. These water samples will be measured for   total and methylmercury in the laboratory. Previously collected   biological samples will be analyzed from these embayments for   mercury content, including fish, macroinvertebrates and zooplankton.    (mercury); (methylmercury); (toxic metal); (toxic metals); (Lake   Ontario); (fish consumption); (fish consumption advisory); (human   health); (chemicals of concern); (chemical of concern)
