Scale and Distribution of global atmospheric pollutants in National Parks of Southeast Alaska
In June-July 2007, we sampled streamwater, suspended particulates, streambed sediments, benthic invertebrates, and juvenile coho salmon in 19 streams in and immediately adjacent to National Park units in the Southeast Alaska Network (Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Sitka National Historic Park, and Klondike Gold Rush National Park) for the purposes of establishing a baseline of contaminant concentrations and evaluating spatial differences in their occurrence. Selected watersheds were the Indian River in SITK, the Taiya and Skagway Rivers in KLGO, and the 16 GLBA watersheds represent a range of ages and landscape characteristics related to successional development following deglaciation. The research team included scientists from the University of Alaska Southeast, Science Museum of Minnesota, U.S. Geological Survey, and Aquatics Alaska - Juneau. The following photo series illustrates field sampling in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.
