Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Wild Rice Sulfate Standard Mesocosm Study: Water, Sediment, and Porewater "Synoptic" Sampling 2013 and 2015

  • Amy Myrbo (Creator)



This dataset represents opportunistic, "synoptic" sampling of 30 experimental mesocosms for chemical parameters. The mesocosm experiments were undertaken by Dr. John Pastor (UMN-Duluth) and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to improve the understanding of why wild rice (Zizania palustris, manoomin, psin) is observed to thrive only in waters with low sulfate (SO4), and to contribute to evaluation of Minnesota Rules 7050.0224, promulgated in 1973, which seeks to limit the exposure of wild rice to sulfate concentrations exceeding 10 mg/L.The dataset is now released as manuscripts using it are being published.
