Regional Geochemical Analysis of Lower Paleozoic Strata, Western Wisconsin
Lower Paleozoic clastic strata of western Wisconsin were deposited during a series of transgressive marine incursions into the mid-continent in Cambrian to Ordovician time. These strata consist of intercalated sandstone, ...
An Assessment of Nutrient Loading through Lacustrine Groundwater Discharge in Mud Lake, Wisconsin
Mud Lake experiences severe lake eutrophication throughout the summer months. Although anthropogenic nutrient sources have been identified as a contributing factor, an ongoing investigation at UW-Eau Claire has demonstrated ...
Assessment of the Source and Mobility of Phosphorus in the Hydrologic System in Western Wisconsin
Lake eutrophication due to nutrient loading from phosphorus (P) is a growing problem across the Midwest, causing a loss of aquatic biodiversity, damage to fisheries, and adverse impacts on human health. Although eutrophication ...
Surface and Groundwater Chemistry of Western WI : Establishing an Environmental Baseline
The expansion of silica sand mining and concentrated animal feeding operations in western WI over the past decade has generated concerns about potential contamination of surface water and groundwater systems. However, the ...
A Case Study at Mud Lake : The Influence of Phosphorus Loading Through Lacustrine Groundwater Discharge on Eutrophication Events in a Stratified Flow-Through Lake in Western Wisconsin
Phosphorus (P)-laden runoff has been associated with lake eutrophication throughout the upper Midwest United States. Although P has been considered immobile in groundwater systems, an ongoing investigation at UW-Eau Claire ...
The Potential Role of the Choiyoi Eruptive Activity in the Great Permian Extinction
The Great Permian Extinction occurred at the end of the Permian Period (~300-250 Ma), when 95% of marine and 70% of terrestrial life became extinct. The cause of this massive extinction event is still unknown, but it may ...
