Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Tangible relationships between season-temperature and rates of P release under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Forecasting the future potential of enhanced internal P loading in LOW.

Project Overview
The goal of this project is to determine: 1) temperature and seasonal variations in sediment chemical-textural characteristics (upper 10-cm sediment layer) and rates of P release from sediments; and 2) vertical variations in mobile P concentrations in the sediment column of Big Traverse Bay in order to better understand the role of internal P loading to the P economy of LOW and for the development of the LOW TMDL.
