Beneficial Use Impairment Identification and Analysis: St. Lawrence River AOC at Massena, New York

Michael Twiss and his team at the Great Rivers Center at Clarkson   University, in collaboration with the Massena Area of Concern (AOC)   Remedial Action committee, will use advanced instrumentation capable   of collecting high resolution relevant data to study the   phytoplankton population status in the Massena AOC. The study will   provide information needed to advance the AOC towards delisting, and   advance limnological research on the St. Lawrence River with the   ultimate goal of establishing a node of the NOAA GLOS. This project   involves measuring phytoplankton community composition and health in   the AOC above and below the area's dam. In July 2  7, samples were   collected above the dam at 12 stations; and in July 2  8, samples   were collected above and below the dam.    (phytoplankton); (St. Lawrence River); (New York); (Massena); (area   of concern); (AOC)
