Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
The Lac Dasserat study arose from a unique field site where metal contamination from an abandoned mine adversely affected the downstream watershed for decades. The scientific workshop created an opportunity for a multidisciplinary research to (1) identify the physical, chemical, biological, and toxicological effects of metal contamination in space and time, (2) develop scientific tools to assess environmental effects and potential recovery from metal contamination in nearby lakes, and (3) improve environmental risk assessment and mining management practices.
