The role of dams and the nearshore zone on phosphorus flows along the river-lake interface

With continued concern for eutrophication in the lower Great Lakes, scientists, government and stakeholders continue to work together towards effective management solutions. In these freshwater systems, phosphorus is a main driver of algal blooms. Our ability to manage phosphorus in these systems to improve water quality is limited by our understanding of phosphorus flows and cycling along rivers and into large lakes.

Join Earth and Environmental Sciences Prof. Philippe Van Cappellen, as he shares the latest research progress on phosphorus flows along the river-large lake continuum and how these are impacted by dams and nearshore biogeochemical cycling.

About the series

The Lake Futures team is excited to announce the launch of a new webinar series. This series will be an opportunity for the academic and non-academic community to engage with Lake Futures researchers, as they share their latest research findings and discuss implications for water policies, programs, and plans in Ontario. 

Webinars will be offered weekly, on Wednesdays from 1-2pm EDT, beginning July 29th. Webinars will include a 30-minute presentation, followed by a 30-minute discussion period. Join the conversation, register today!
