About this book

This volume describes lake geochemistry, the cycling and distribution of major elements in aquatic systems, the behaviour of trace elements in lakes, and organic contaminants. Theory, practical techniques, potential research, and policy implications are discussed.


Long-Term Chemical Changes in Lakes: Quantitative Inferences from Biotic Remains in the Sediment Record; Atmospheric Mercury Deposition to Lakes and Watersheds: A Quantitative Reconstruction from Multiple Sediment Cores; Use of Oxygen-18 and Deuterium To Assess the Hydrology of Groundwater-Lake Systems; Ecosystem-Scale Experiments: The Use of Stable Isotopes in Fresh Waters; Effects of Acidification on Chemical Composition and Chemical Cycles in a Seepage Lake: Inferences from a Whole-Lake Experiment; Organic Phosphorus in the Hydrosphere: Characterization via 'P Fourier Transform Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy; Chemistry of Dissolved Organic Matter in Rivers, Lakes and Reservoirs; Long-Term Changes in Watershed Retention of Nitrogen: Its Causes and Aquatic Consequences; Mass Fluxes and Recycling of Phosphorus in Lake Michigan: Role of Major Particle Phases in Regulating the Annual Cycle; Retention of Sulfur in Lake Sediments; Reaction of H[2S with Ferric Oxides: Some Conceptual Ideas on Its Significance for Sediment-Water Interactions; Factors Affecting the Distribution of H[2O[2 in Surface Waters; Cycling of Mercury across the Sediment-Water Interface in Seepage Lakes; Contaminant Mobilization Resulting from Redox Pumping in a Metal-Contaminated River-Reservoir System; Cycles of Trace Elements in a Lake with a Seasonally Anoxic Hypolimnion; Manganese Dynamics in Lake Richard B. Russell; Environmental Behavior and Fate of Anionic Surfactants; Fate of Hydrophobic Organic Contaminants: Processes Affecting Uptake by Phytoplankton; Differential Weathering of PCB Congeners in Lake Hartwell, South Carolina
