Siliceous Microfossil Succession in the Sediments of McLeod Bay, Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories
Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences
Analysis of biogenic silica and siliceous microfossils preserved in sediments of McLeod Bay shows increased abundance and modified species composition in more recent sediments, especially in the post-industrial era. Although McLeod Bay remains highly oligotrophic, increased microfossil flux and changes in species composition indicate increasing nutrient supply. Atmospheric transport of nutrients from remote sources may be implicated. -from Authors
