    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för ekologi, miljö och geovetenskap

    Author : Anne Rebotzke; [2023]
    Keywords : mercury; lake sediment; primary productivity; algal scavenging; biogenic silica; diatom proxy; chlorophyll-a; organic matter;

    Abstract : The aim of this work is to test the proposed approach of algal scavenging as a driver of sediment mercury (Hg) on different time scales and to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of Hg accumulation in lake sediments.
