Predicting the Influence of Mixing Hydrodynamics and Food Web Structure on Spatial Variability of Phosphorous Concentrations in Lake Simcoe

Predicting the Influence of Mixing Hydrodynamics and Food Web Structure on Spatial Variability of Phosphorous Concentrations in Lake Simcoe

Environment Canada (EC)/Ontario Ministry of Environment (ENE)

The project applied lessons learned in developing the Estuary and Lake Computer Model (ELCOM) hydrodynamic 3D model and Computational Aquatic Ecosystem Dynamics (CAEDYM) biological/biogeochemical models for Lakes Erie and Ontario to Lake Simcoe. It examined the effects of climate change, biological community structure and phosphorus concentrations on oxygen depletion offshore and macrophyte growth and fish habitat inshore.
