Microcosm Facility

The Aquatic Ecotoxicology Microcosm Facility is located at the University of Guelph and consists of thirty PVC-lined round tanks (microcosms) that are designed to replicate freshwater pond ecosystems. The microcosms were constructed in 1995 and has been in continuous use since that time. The microcosms have a water depth of 1 m, a diameter of 3.9 m, and a capacity of approximately 12,000 L of water and are open to the elements e.g., rain, light, temperature.
