Project Overview

The primary goal of this project is to analyze of dated sediment cores to reconstruct changes in the lake condition over the last 150 years. This will be done using multiple lines of evidence including biogeochemistry, sediment accumulation, and diatom and algal remains as biological indicators. The results of the work conducted for this project will be used for three purposes: to design lake restoration activities; develop a lake management plan; and incorporate the data into the Upper and Lower Red Lakes Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategy (WRAPS) that was started the summer of 2014.
