Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Wild Rice Sulfate Study Mesocosm Synoptic Data
Experimental wetland mesocosms were loaded with dissolved sulfate at various concentrations to study the effects on the growth of wild rice (Zizania sp.). The surface water, sediment porewater, and sediment of 30 mesocosms representing four treatment levels were analyzed over the course of two days in August 2013 to investigate the effects of adding a terminal electron acceptor to an organic rich, anoxic system.
