Held Thursday, August 28th at Nipissing University – Muskoka Campus in Bracebridge.
Phosphorus concentrations are naturally low in most lakes and streams located on the Canadian Shield, yet levels in many surface waters in the Muskoka-Haliburton region have declined over the past 4 decades. The cause of these declines is unknown, and we are actively investigating a number of potential drivers. This talk will describe how surface water phosphorus levels vary across the region and over time and shed light on the drivers of long-term change.
This presentation is based on research being undertaken with funding provided by the Canadian Water Network.
