Nutrient and contaminant status in the wetlands of the Slave River Delta
Principal Investigator: Doig, Lorne
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Through this research the team will answer the following questions: 1. From the outer Slave River Delta (SRD) to the apex of the SRD, what is the current status of nutrients and contaminants in SRD wetland ecosystems? 2. How do trace elements (e.g., mercury) move through SRD wetland food webs? 3. How does water source affect the availability of nutrients and trace metals in SRD wetlands? Wet...
