|Abstract:||In this report a proposal to model two biological processes currently utilized by Boojum Research to remove contaminants from wastewater is forwarded. The first model is for heavy metal bioaccumulation by nonrhizoidal, perphytic algae. This model is based on field data collected by Boojum Research from a decommissioned heavy metal mine at Buchans, Newfoundland. The second model is for radionuclide bioaccumulation by characean algae. This model is based on field data from a decommissioned uranium mine at Rabbit Lake, Saskatchewan. Both models are at an early stage of development, and require further work. The final object is to have biological polishing models which can be used as an aid in planning, design, and management of a decommissioned mine site.|
