Abstract: These objectives are based on a long-term investigation of Great Salt Lake, Utah. Annual short-term objectives may differ based on budget and results of previous investigations:
Define the physical constraints, circulation, and mixing rates of Great Salt Lake.
Determine the nutrient (nitrogen and phosphorous species) budget.
Quantify the occurrence and distribution of anthropogenic heavy metals, trace elements, and synthetic organic compounds.
