    urban and agricultural runoff to the Great lakes and its tributaries have contributed toxic substances into the ecosystem, resulting in major contamination issues. In most cases, the contamination is introduced in the tributaries which, via sediment transport and erosion mechanisms, contribute to contamination of the Great Lakes proper. of persistent toxic substances. The third and fourth reports deal with modeling the atmospheric transport and deposition of persistent toxic substances to the Great Lakes and monitoring of persistent toxic substance in the Great Lakes region, respectively. The fifth report is a summary of the first four reports.
