Project Description

The goal of this proposal is to develop a process-based understanding of the controls on four primary water-quality issues impacting the near-shore zone:

  1. near-shore clarity
  2. periphyton (attached algae) growth
  3. distribution and factors facilitating the spread of nonnative plant and fish species
  4. fate of pollutants in the near-shore zones (from streams, storm drains, spills, etc.)
