Effects of Experimental Sulfate Additions on Nutrient Cycling, Cyanobacterial Abundunce and Mercury Methylation Lake 227, Experimental Lakes Area

Effects of Experimental Sulfate Additions on Nutrient Cycling, Cyanobacterial Abundunce and Mercury Methylation Lake 227, Experimental Lakes Area

Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)

The research aimed to assess the effect of sulphate levels on several impacts associated with excessive fertilization of lakes. The study was conducted in a remote, fishless lake in northwestern Ontario's Experimental Lakes Area. Sulphate was believed to play a key role in regulating various microbial processes in North American lakes and the differences in sulphate concentrations explained the variance among individual lakes.
