Excerpt
Excerpt: Near Shore Chemistry In The Vicinity Of The Grand River, Michigan. The impact on near shore water chemistry and bottom sediments of the input from the Grand River, Mich., is assessed. The Grand River is the largest tributary flowing into Lake Michigan and a major contributor of several noxious substances. During the spring peak flows, as much as 10 percent of the annual total phosphorus and 9 percent of the total suspended matter can be loaded to the lake. Riverine polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), zinc, nickel, and lead were found to be above the International Joint Commission recommended levels for aquatic health. Near shore sediment chemistry reflects the dominance of the long shore component of the river plume, which is generally confined to a lo-km2 area around the river's mouth. Seasonal patterns of phosphorus-carbon and carbon-nitrogen in water and sediment samples are presented. Spatial distributions of the variables examined indicate that there are two significant phases (dissolved and particulate) and three transport regions (surface microlayer, thermocline, and nepheloid) in which the material moves from the river to the open lake.
