Water Quality in Lake St. Francois

This project will measure changes in plankton community and health   and nutrients along two transects (north shore from in Quebec to   near Cornwall, on south shore from Snell lock to into Quebec - past   Salmon River) and two across channel transects (at Moses-Saunders   outfall and from Creg Quay to St. Anicet); this will be done 4 times   (June, Aug, Sept, April). This project, in collaboration with   SLRIES (St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences),   partly addresses the trans-boundary impact issue.    (plankton); (St. Lawrence River); (Quebec); (New York); (snell   lock); (Snell Lock St. Lawrence Seaway); (trans-boundary issue);   (trans-boundary issues); (trans-boundary); (Lake St. Francois)
