ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS OF CALCIUM MAGNESIUM ACETATE ON NATURAL PHYTOPLANKTON AND BACTERIAL COMMUNITIES IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIAN LAKES. IN: CHEMICAL DEICERS AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Sodium and calcium chloride have been widely used as effective highway deicers for many years. However, over the past twenty years data have accumulated showing some negative effects that these salts have on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems adjacent to treated roadways. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence calcium magnesium acetate may have on a wide variety of natural assemblages of lake phytoplankton communities, as well as its impact on particular microbial processes in a lake ecosystem.
