Abstract

This study builds mathematical models based on compartmental analysis to analyze the behavior of mercury contaminants in Lake Onondaga, Syracuse, New York; an uncontrolled hazardous waste site that falls under the federal government's Superfund cleanup program. Beginning with a basic decay model and concluding with an equilibrium shift model that are used to analyze the behavior of mercury; the contaminant, during different environmental situations in Lake Onondaga. The models in our study are used to predict the amount of time necessary to reduce the levels of mercury to a given percentage or to obtain equilibrium under certain conditions.
