    Stream Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study

    Water chemistry is measured at several stream stations in the Turkey Lakes Watershed (TLW) to quantify mass fluxes, cycling and budgets. Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) tends to focus on lake outflow stations and other stations situated on Norberg Creek (the major drainage channel in...

    Lake Study: Turkey Lakes Watershed Study

    The Turkey Lakes Watershed (TLW) is 1 of 5 hydrologically "calibrated" basins in eastern Canada that were originally devoted to process-oriented research into "acid rain" effects. They were selected to cover a wide range of climatic and hydrological conditions, deposition magnitudes, and terrain...

    Suspended sediment concentration

    The map shows the concentration (annual load) of suspended sediments into rivers (in milligrams per litre). The load of sediment is lower in the Canadian Shield area and on the Arctic Islands. The greatest loads appear in the Prairie Provinces and in the Cordillera. The map also shows histograms...
