Thames River and Fanshawe Reservoir data

Map and Visualize

The Thames River in Ontario is the largest Canadian tributary source of phosphorus (P) to Lake Erie's western basin. Although major efforts have been expended to reduce P losses from landscapes to rivers, the role of dammed reservoirs on riverine P flow remains poorly characterized. In this study, we determined whether Fanshawe Reservoir, on the Thames River, is a net sink or source for P.
