Anthropogenic, trans-boundary lead pollution in Japanese lakes

(Kumamoto University) Anthropogenic, trans-boundary lead pollution from the Asian mainland has been found in lakes around Japan. Professor Takahiro Hosono's research group compared lead isotope ratios from lake sediment cores to sources around Asia and were able to match the contaminants to areas in Russia and China.
