Detailed Description

Today on the USGS CoreCast we explore what impact emerging contaminants have on the health and development of aquatic wildlife. We traveled to the Pacific Northwest to talk with a multidisciplinary research team of USGS scientists about an ongoing study that characterizes the contaminants and habitats for a number of aquatic species along the lower Columbia River.


Team: Edwin Elias, Guy Gelfenbaum

Relevance: Streamflow modeling and point-source tracer modeling along the lower Columbia River. Tool for modeling contaminant and sediment transport. The model runs were done as scenarios, representing a certain set of conditions. They weren't run to represent a particular time period.
