Objective(s): To sample a series of lakes in order to reconstruct the environmental history of this region; to assess present day water quality.

Project Description: The researchers plan to take samples of lake water and lake sediments from a variety of sites in the region. From these samples, information will be collected about the water chemistry, microscopic organisms present in the lakes, and changes in the region's past environmental and climatic conditions.
