Found 10 records similar to Sediment chemistry (Great Lakes nearshore areas)
Data is collected each year, according to the lake-by-lake cycle. Information includes: * water chemistry * approximately 60 index and reference stations throughout the Great Lakes basin
This dataset contains information on benthic invertebrate community structure of samples collected from nearshore index monitoring stations within a Great Lake basin each year. The composition of benthic invertebrates (such as insects, worms, mussels, snails and crayfish) found in a sample is used as a biological indicator of trophic status and general environmental conditions to help understand ecosystem function, structure and change. Surveys are typically conducted in one of the Great Lakes basins each year. In most cases, five replicate samples (600 μm mesh, 9-inch ponar) were collected at each station.
Recipients of a community fund that issues grants to organizations working to protect and restore the Great Lakes. Organizations could receive a grant up to $25,000 for projects. The fund is open to: * not-for-profit organizations * First Nations communities and organizations * Metis communities and organizations
Data includes: * The Lake Superior watershed * The Lake Huron watershed * The Lake Erie watershed * The Lake Ontario watershed * The St. Lawrence River watershed
This data set includes information on sampling locations and physical conditions in lakes and streams across Ontario. It also includes meteorological conditions from monitoring stations in south-central Ontario. Lakes The data for lakes includes sampling location details and measurements such as: * temperature * dissolved oxygen levels * water transparency Streams The data for streams includes measurements such as stream flow discharge from monitoring stations in south-central Ontario. Meteorological conditions This dataset contains meteorological conditions for climate stations close to monitored lakes in south-central Ontario.
The dataset has been used for the Great Lakes Conservation Blueprint Project for Aquatic Biodiversity. It can be used for: * research and aquatic species inventories * environmental impact and monitoring * watershed based resource planning and management * fisheries and other aquatic analysis Official LIO title: Aquatic Ecosystems Classification: Great Lakes Basin - Coast, Streams, Lakes and Wetlands
This data set includes information on water quality of lakes and streams across Ontario since 1976. It includes: * major anions and cations * nutrients * chlorophyll * metals Data were collected as part of routine monitoring of water quality of inland waters and for scientific and research purposes.
Get data about the water quality for Ontario's inland lakes. The data is collected through volunteer monitoring efforts – citizen science. The Lake Partner Program (LPP) measures water quality in inland lakes across Ontario. This dataset provides water quality and water clarity data, as well as data on the concentrations of: * total phosphorus * calcium Spatial information for lake monitoring locations across Ontario are also available.
Concentration levels from soil sampled in urban and rural parklands in the province. Data includes: * station name and location (rounded to 1 km precision) * sample date * results for 35 inorganics (1991) * results for 8 volatile organic compounds (2009)
Get data describing benthic-invertebrate (bottom dwelling aquatic invertebrates) community structure and habitat conditions in various waterbodies. This dataset includes: * counts of different kinds of benthic invertebrates * water chemistry * information about collected samples (geographic coordinates, sampling agencies, collection dates, and waterbody types) * descriptions of sampling effort and equipment
