Factors that Affect Susceptibility of Urban and Rural Minnesota Lakes to Winter Oxygen Depletion
Name of Award
3M Small Scale Grant
Jill Welter, Assistant Professor of Biology, and Carrie Booth, student researcher, received a $2,000 award from the 3M Small Scale Grant program to determine which factors (lake size, water temperature, nutrient content, local air temperature, plankton biomass, and/or urban versus rural location) most strongly contribute to the oxygen content of local lakes, and therefore make them most susceptible to anoxia.
