Wave Propagation and Water Quality Impacts on Fresh Water Lakes

Capt. Tim Tyre, PhD, USN(ret), Terra Vigilis Security Group & Prof. Mike Mortensen, Carroll University

The presentation details a study of “enhanced” wave impacts on water quality and sediment re-deposition in a medium sized fresh water lake in SE Wisconsin.Implications from the initial reseach have resulted in WDNR funded additional study with focus upon precise measures of subsurface wave impacts, nutrient spread by plume development and strategies for mitigation.
