The overall goals of this project are to understand the present day water quality of arctic lakes and ponds and to attempt to determine if the water quality of these sites is changing as a result of, for example recent climate change or other disturbances. This study has been going on for a number of years and data collected in the western Arctic will be compared to results from the eastern Arctic...

In this ongoing research, we plan to sample lake water and lake sediments from a number of study sites located near Resolute. At each lake we will analyze the water and mud samples for the presence of pollution (i.e., black carbon particles) as well as species of algae. This data will provide information about the past environment and indicate environmental change....
