Table Rock Lake Project

 

EVALUATION OF CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL TRACERS FOR SOURCE APPORTIONMENT OF PHOSPHORUS IN TABLE ROCK LAKE, ON THE MISSOURI-ARKANSAS BORDER (completed)

National Decentralized Water Resources Capacity Development Project (NDWRCDP) Research

NDWRCDP Project Number WU-HT-03-00

Environmental Science and Engineering

Co-PIs: Drs. Dan Giammar and Lars Angenent

Cooperating with Dr. Stefan Falke

Post-docs: Drs. Bala Ramaswami and Zhiwen Yuan

 

Overall Research Objective:

The primary objective of the proposed research project is to evaluate the utility of a suite of chemical and biological species as tracers for the determination of relative contributions of sources of phosphorus to surface water.  In particular, the project will evaluate the utility of trace metals and metalloids, a small set of prescription and non-prescription drugs, and bacteriophages as tracers.
