Assessing the Relationship between Internal Ferrous Iron Loading and Cyanobacteria Bloom Formation in Lake Winnipeg

Assessing the Relationship between Internal Ferrous Iron Loading and Cyanobacteria Bloom Formation in Lake Winnipeg

Environment Canada (EC) Lake Winnipeg Basin Stewardship Fund

The research aimed to quantify internal loading rates of iron and phosphorus by measuring iron and phosphorus release from sediment cores collected at several stations throughout the study sites. The project provided insights on the conditions that directly lead to bloom formation and enhanced research and monitoring capacity to assist in policy decision making at local and provincial levels.
