JGLR paper calling for more stringent Lake Erie hypoxia-based loading targets is highlighted in Michigan news
February 27, 2014
A study recently published in JGLR has been showcased in a press release through the University of Michigan News. The findings came out of the Lake Erie EcoFore project, a 5-year collaboration funded through NOAA's National Ocean Service. The study documented recent trends and impacts of eutrophication-related properties linked to Lake Erie hypoxia and harmful algal blooms. Conclusions from the research include revised guidance on pollutant loading targets, such as the need for a 78% reduction in dissolved reactive phosphorus to achieve a 2,000 km2 decrease in Lake Erie hypoxic areas.
