Baeten, Langston, and Lafreniere Publish Article: “A Spatial Evaluation of Historic Iron Mining Impacts on Current Impaired Waters in Lake Superior’s Mesabi Range”

AmbioJohn Baeten, Nancy Langston and Don Lafreniere published the article, “A spatial evaluation of historic iron mining impacts on current impaired waters in Lake Superior’s Mesabi Range,” in the international journal, Ambio: A Journal of the Human Environment. The article compares historic mining intensity in Minnesota’s Mesabi Iron Range with current impaired waters data to show the utility of historical datasets to understand current environmental challenges at landscape scales. The authors present a novel spatial approach that lands managers and policy makers can apply to other landscapes to assess the effects of past mining activity on watershed health.
