A Lake Michigan experimental program to assess the contribution to Great Lakes loading by atmospheric transport and dry deposition of aerosol was conducted. A midlake and nearshore trace element and nutrients data base with associated meteorology capable of establishing a climatology for mass transfer to Lake Michigan was collected during 1977 and 1978. Significant data for Al, Ca, Cu, Fe, Mg, Mn, Pb, Ti, Zn, total P, NO3 and SO4 were obtained. A strong linear dependence upon atmospheric thermal stability in the variability of all twelve aerosol constituents was found, but no linear dependence upon wind speed was found. Bulk deposition velocities as a function of overlake climatology were used to calculate dry deposition atmospheric loadings to Lake Michigan.
