An investigation of the ecology of shore-fouling algae in the Point Clark area of Lake Huron

Examine the occurrence of the shore fouling algae Cladophora and   Chara spp. in Point Clark area of Lake Huron, an area chronically   plagued by fouled beaches. The chemical, physical and biological   factors which influence the growth dynamics of benthic algae in the   nearshore of Lake Huron along with the physical and or biological   mechanism by which algae are transferred from areas of growth on the   lakebed to shoreline will be investigated.    (eutrophication); (algal bloom); (algal blooms); (Cladophora);   (Chara); (nearshore); (Lake Huron)
