Pb-210 radiometric dating in sediment of three marine lakes receiving metal inputs from coal-fired power stations in Australia
In New South Wales, estuarine lakes receiving inputs from coal fired power plants have been shown to contain elevated metal concentrations which may be degrading aquatic ecosystems. This is potentially a major problem considering coal-power stations currently supply 49% of Australia’s electricity, with energy supply from coal fi red power stations projected to increase to 57% by 2040.
