Researchers at Michigan Technological University have discovered that the number of small tributaries entering Lake Superior is probably much greater than anyone has previously estimated, and their contributions to the lake ecology and biochemistry is mostly unknown.
Head researcher Amy Marcarelli has been spreading the word about this research, which was published in the Journal of the American Water Resources Association. Check out the links below to get a peak into what interested researchers about the smaller tributaries and how they are measuring stream impacts on Lake Superior ecology and biochemistry, plus what plans are in store for the future of this research topic.
