Surface-water Acidification and Reproducibility of Sediment Cores from Kejimkujik Lake, Nova Scotia, Canada Article (PDF Available) in Water Air and Soil Pollution (1) May with Acidification of organic waters in Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia. Proceedings of a symposium on the acidification of organic waters in Kejimkujik National Park. Wolfville, N.S., Oct. 25–27, (p. ). Dordrecht, The Netherlands: Kluwer. Google ScholarCited by: Kejimkujik National Park in eastern Canada is a relatively pristine, headwater ecosystem; yet, the blood of common loons in the Kejimkujik area contains the highest Hg levels of any loons in North America (Burgess et al., ). The increased Hg concentrations present in adult loonsCited by:   Dilute waters (Ca = to mg L−1) respond by depressed pH levels throughout the year to existing atmospheric wet deposition of sulphate (20 kg ha−1yr−1).This occurs in southwest Nova Scotia particularly during the cold, wet season when runoff is high. Colored waters of similar Ca levels receiving runoff from peaty catchments exhibit pH values one unit lower ( to ) than those Cited by:

Across eastern Canada, however, million lakes are thought to still be vulnerable to acidification under an atmospheric-deposition regime similar to that in Author: Bill Freedman. Kejimkujik National Park (Figure 3a) is situated in south-central Nova Scotia, approximately 90 km southwest of Halifax. It pro-vides a good example of an area where GIS can play an important role in environmental geochemistry research. Bedrock Geology The bedrock of Kejimkujik Park is typical of rocks of the Meguma. Kejimkujik Seaside National Park is inviting people to go crabbing this summer. The park has been battling the invasive green crab for years. An aggressive predator, to get to its prey, it rips up.

Mercury (Hg) concentrations in fish from acidic lakes (pHCited by:   Once rich forests of willowy kelp that stretch along Nova Scotia's coast have been decimated by warming water temperatures, says a marine .   California sea otters resting in kelp. Photo by Mike Baird via Flickr (). The team doesn’t just expect that kelp forests will help mitigate ocean acidification in nearby waters.   Acidic atmospheric deposition continues to be a serious environmental concern. Sulfur oxides and nitrogen compounds are emitted from industrial and transportation sources, utilities, agricultural sources, and metropolitan areas which enter the atmosphere and are transformed into acidifying compounds. These pollutants are transported into the atmosphere and are removed, in part, .
