Adirondack Lake Science

I came across this again looking for something else. This is not new, and it may have been posted on this forum already, but I could not find it... soooo...

Fairly interesting documentary about the research regarding how watersheds in the Adirondacks handle pollutants.

One interesting observation they make is the vast majority of pollution from rainwater comes from direct deposition onto the lake rather than runoff. The forest can, and does, filter a fair deal of the nitrogen pollution (which is what they were talking to).

They found it interesting, although confirming what is observed in many ecological system, that understanding any particular water bodies throughout the hydrological system required understanding the whole system, and not those in close proximity i.e. everything connected.
