About Joseph C Makarewicz

Applied aspects of environmental science, lake and watershed resource management, including such topics as watershed and ecosystem approaches to determining point and non-point sources of nutrients in urban and rural watersheds, hydrologic and nutrient budgets, indicators of successful remediation, strategies and demonstrations projects for reducing nutrient and organic hydrocarbon from watersheds, atmospheric deposition rates on ecosystems, uptake dynamics of chlorinated hydrocarbons in aquatic food-webs, top-down and bottom-up effects on plankton community structure, environmental education, environmental impact statements, plankton as indicators of success of the phosphorus reduction program in the Great Lakes and methods of reducing pesticide levels in fish grown in polluted waters. Because of my former association with the Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Study in New Hampshire, I also have continuing interest in acid precipitation and analysis using the small watershed approach.
