Impact of zebra mussel invasion on river water quality
The biology of the zebra mussel is reviewed as it relates to water-quality problems in rivers. A relationship between population densities of the zebra mussel and their respiration demands for oxygenExpand

Ecosystem effects of a tropical cyclone on a network of lakes in northeastern North America.
Here we document the regional effects of Tropical Cyclone Irene on thermal structure and ecosystem metabolism in nine lakes and reservoirs in northeastern North America using a network ofExpand

Seasonality in phosphorus release rates from the sediments of a hypereutrophic lake under a matrix of pH and redox conditions
Phosphorus release rates were measured on intact sediment cores collected from the major depositional basin of Onondaga Lake, a dimictic, calcareous, hypereutrophic system in Syracuse, N.Y., U.S.A.Expand

MERIS satellite chlorophyll mapping of oligotrophic and eutrophic waters in the Laurentian Great Lakes
Chlorophyll-a (Chla) concentrations and ‘water-leaving’ reflectance were assessed along transects in Keweenaw Bay (Lake Superior) and in Green Bay (Lake Michigan) (two of the Laurentian Great Lakes,Expand

Limnological and engineering analysis of a polluted urban lake : prelude to environmental management of Onondaga Lake, New York
Onondaga Lake in Syracuse, New York is a model for the analysis and management of a polluted urban lake. Sometimes referred to as "the most polluted lake in the United States", Onondaga Lake is oneExpand

Local to regional emission sources affecting mercury fluxes to New York lakes
Abstract Lake-sediment records across the Northern Hemisphere show increases in atmospheric deposition of anthropogenic mercury (Hg) over the last 150 years. Most of the previous studies haveExpand

Determination of sediment oxygen demand by direct measurement and by inference from reduced species accumulation
Rates of sediment oxygen demand (SOD) were determined for hypereutrophic Onondaga Lake, New York (USA), by direct and indirect means. The direct approach, laboratory measurements made on intactExpand

Phosphorus deposition from the epilimnion of Onondaga Lake
The downward flux of inorganic and organic fractions of phosphorus from the epilimnion of calcium-rich, hypereutrophic, Onondaga Lake was determined over 7 months in the water and in sediment traps.Expand

Whole-lake nitrate addition for control of methylmercury in mercury-contaminated Onondaga Lake, NY.
Methylmercury (MeHg) strongly bioaccumulates in aquatic food webs resulting in exposure to humans and wildlife through consumption of fish. Production of MeHg is promoted by anaerobic conditions andExpand
