Lake Winnipeg Water Temperature 2007

Lake Winnipeg Water Temperature 2007 Water temperature data were collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada at selected locations in Lake Winnipeg.Thermograph moorings were deployed in the north basin at station 505 and 506, in the south basin at station 500, in the Lake Winnipeg Narrows at station 502, northwest of Berens Island at station 503 and north of Reindeer Island at station 504. This data was used in the hydrodynamic Estuary, Lake and Coastal Model (ELCOM) to predict water movement patterns and then coupled with the Computational Aquatic Ecosystem Dynamics Model (CAEDYM) to predict response to potential nutrient loading reduction actions to improve water quality in Lake Winnipeg. Supplemental Information Lake Winnipeg Basin Initiative Lake Winnipeg is the sixth largest lake in Canada with the second largest watershed reaching from Ontario to Alberta to Minnesota and North Dakota. It supports a $25 million commercial fishing industry and a $110 million recreation and tourism industry. Excessive sources of phosphorus and nitrogen have resulted in increased toxic cyanobacteria blooms. This initiative allows for science to assess nutrient cycling and pathways, develop models to predict and manage nutrient loads, and monitor water quality and the biological community. In order to foster the long term sustainability of Lake Winnipeg, the Government of Canada has funded the initiative through the Action Plan for Clean Water.

Lake Winnipeg Basin Initiative

Lake Winnipeg is the sixth largest lake in Canada with the second largest watershed reaching from Ontario to Alberta to Minnesota and North Dakota. It supports a $25 million commercial fishing industry and a $110 million recreation and tourism industry. Excessive sources of phosphorus and nitrogen have resulted in increased toxic cyanobacteria blooms. This initiative allows for science to assess nutrient cycling and pathways, develop models to predict and manage nutrient loads, and monitor water quality and the biological community.
