PhD Dissertation Defense – Sarah Bartlett

November 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Please join us on Wednesday, November 20th at 2:00pm in the GLRF Ballroom as PhD Candidate Sarah Bartlett presents “Cyanobacterial Bloom Ecology and Cyanotoxins in the Lake Winnebago – Green Bay System”.

Variability in lake cyanotoxin concentrations is not fully understood at time-scales relevant to drinking water production and there is a great need for information about cyanobacterial blooms and their toxins that may pose recreational risk. Cyanobacterial blooms and their toxins (cyanotoxins) were assessed using a high resolution (4 times/per day) sampling strategy employed for a cyanobacterial growing season followed by a multi-year study assessing cyanotoxin dynamics by depth in the eutrophic Lake Winnebago. The first spatial assessment of cyanotoxins in Green Bay, a highly productive region in Lake Michigan that is fed by the Lake Winnebago-Fox River system, was also completed.
