Nearshore hypoxia as a new Lake Erie metric

This project will measure shoreward intrusions of oxygen-depleted   bottom water into shallow regions of the central basin during the   period of summer thermal stratification. This information is   expected to help explain the absence of Hexagenia mayflies, zebra   and quagga mussels (Dreissenidae), and various other "clean-water"   invertebrates from most of the shallow sedimentary areas of the   basin.     (AIS); (aquatic invasive species); (ANS); (aquatic nuisance   species); (zebra mussel); (zebra mussels); (Dreissena polymorpha);   (Dreissena rostriformis bugensis); (dreissenid); (dreissenids);   (Dreissena bugensis); (mayfly); (mayflies); (Hexagenia); (hypoxic);   (hypoxia); (nearshore); (Lake Erie)
