Hamilton Harbour Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler data

Hamilton Harbour Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler data Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler(ADCP) data was collected during the summer months of 2017 in the Randle Reef area of Hamilton Harbor. The data is used to validate a three dimensional MIKE3-FM hydrodynamic and mud transport modeling system. The model is used to study the hydrodynamic circulation, transport and fate of spilled dredged material around Randle Reef area of Hamilton Harbor. Supplemental Information Funding for this study was provided in part by the Government of Canada’s Great Lakes Action Plan (GLAP) and in support Hamilton Harbour Area of Concern. In 1987 under the revised Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, 43 areas of concern (AOC), 12 of which are located in Canada, were identified as having severely impaired beneficial uses and water quality. As funded by the Great Lakes Action Plan, a Remedial Action Plan was formed for each area of concern bringing together experts from government, industry, municipalities and environmental non-government organizations to address these impacts. Today over 900 restoration projects have been successfully completed by Environment and Climate Change Canada and partners including Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrades, fish and wildlife habitat restoration, and water quality improvements. Today Wheatley Harbour (Lake Erie), Collingwood Harbour and Severn Sound (Georgian Bay) have been de-listed as an area of concern. Spanish Harbour and Jackfish Bay (Lake Superior) are now areas in recovery. Today scientific monitoring and research is continuing in the remaining AOCs to measure response of remedial efforts.
