Hydrochemical indicators of eutrophication
Sep 2005-Sep 2010
Aquatic chemistry can reveal important changes in the trophic status of freshwater ecosystems. In this project, supervised by an incredible hydrologist Prof. Bernikova T., I identified key chemical components which indicated deteriorating water quality and risks of eutrophication in the large oligotrophic Lake Vištytis/Озеро Виштынецкое (Russain part).
Fieldwork in Russia and the UK (part of the team)
Aquatic chemistry analysis. Mass spectrometry and spectrophotometry.
