Turkey Lakes watershed study: overview

The Turkey Lakes Watershed (TLW) Study was initiated in 1980 by Environment Canada, Natural Resources Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada to evaluate anthropogenic perturbation of Canadian Shield ecosystems.  Originally, the Study focused on the aquatic and terrestrial effects of acid rain, but now it includes research into the effects of other anthropogenic pollutants (e.g. toxic contaminants) and other ecological perturbations (e.g. forest harvesting, climate change and fish habitat modification).

(More detailed information can be found in a Study description paper and throughout the remainder of this web site).
