Water Quality Monitoring in Western Lake Erie and Maumee Bay

Objectives:  1) Basic Monitoring: establishing baseline water-quality conditions   in Maumee Bay and western Lake Erie.  2) Building the Future of Monitoring: deployment of instrument   packages at various lake locations.  3) Episodic Events : Frequent sampling to observe algal blooms and  intermittent hypoxic events as they occur.  4) Sediment Oxygen Demand of Natural Sediments and Dredgings:  Measurements of SOD in several locations including open-lake dredging  disposal areas.    (Lake Erie); (Maumee Bay); (monitoring); (algal blooms); (algal   bloom); (eutrophication); (hypoxia); (invasive species); (aquatic   invasive species); (exotic species); (fish-hook water flea); (fish-  hook water fleas); (Cercopagis pengoi); (Daphnia lumholtzi)
