Land-Use Effects on Export and Retention of Mercury in the Lake Ozette Watershed
Land-Use Effects on Export and Retention of Mercury in the Lake Ozette Watershed (Number of pages: 55) (Publication Size: 1200KB)

|Description||Eight sampling events were conducted at three streams in and adjacent to the Lake Ozette watershed from September 2009 - March 2010 to assess the effects of land use on mercury export. The sites included two logged watersheds and an unlogged reference site. Water samples were analyzed for total mercury, methylmercury, total organic carbon, dissolved organic carbon, and total suspended solids.
Differences in water quality characteristics between the three creeks hampered cross-comparisons of the mercury data. However, median mercury fluxes were highest in the most extensively logged watershed. Mercury fluxes differed little between the remaining logged watershed and the reference site.
