Alteration of nutrient cycling and food web structure by profundal quagga mussels in Lake Michigan

Major Goals and Objectives

  • Quantify the flux of carbon and phosphorus through the profundal quagga mussel community
  • Determine the effect of these mussel-mediated fluxes on ecosystem-scale nutrient dynamics and energy flow

Accomplishments / Benefits

Publication: Observations of turbulence and mean flow in the low-energy hypolimnetic boundary layer of a large lake
