“Is Walden Okay?: Patterns of Phosphorous and Oxygen in the Pond"
Sunday, September 17, 3-4:30pm

John M. Nevison will talk about the effects of phosphorous and dissolved oxygen on Walden Pond. The interaction of these two elements is the root cause of modern toxic algae blooms such as those that have occurred on White Pond. This talk will demonstrate a simple dynamic model that ties together the data on these elements and illustrates the level of the current threats to the well-being of Walden Pond.
