1. Bueche, Matthieu. Spore-forming bacteria as indicators of pollution in sediments of Lake Geneva.

Degree: 2014, Université de Neuchâtel

Two components: Endospore-forming Firmicutes are well known for their capacity to survive under harsh environmental conditions through the formation of strong and persistent structures called endospores. Sediments of the Bay of Vidy (Lake Geneva), that are well known for their heavy metal pollution. The question was: Are endospore-forming Firmicutes predominant members of the bacterial communities in the most impacted sediments? The co-occurrence of these two components was effectively observed, and four particular strains of Clostridia were identified as dominant. However, their presence could be related to a combination of a dysfunction of the waste water treatment plant infrastructure and their survival in the state of an endospore. Episodic flooding events in the waste water treatment plant is effectively strongly suspected and supported by the data collected during this thesis. At the end of this work, the dominance of this particular group of bacteria does not seem to be uniquely related to their resistance to high concentrations of heavy metals, but also to the environmental changes occurring during the waste water treatment process and/or during the burial of bacterial communities in sediments. Advisors/Committee Members: Pilar (Dir.).

2. Eggertson, E. Bruce. The Espanola Formation: A Proterozoic Carbonate North of Lake Huron, Ontario.

Degree: 1975, McMaster University

The Proterozoic Espanola Formation (Huronian Sequence) was studied at Geneva Lake, Ontario, 45 miles north-west of Sudbury. A major lithological change exists in the Espanola Formation between this area and the type section on the north shore of Lake Huron, 75 miles to the south. Unusually pure (95 percent) microcrystalline limestones and dolostones occur in almost equal abundance to the calcareous siltstones which are the characteristic lithology of the formation in its type section. The existence and position of a fine grained deposit such as the Espanola in a stratigraphic sequence which consists mostly of glacial and periglacial deposits is unusual. It is suggested that this fine-grained deposit was an integral part of a cycle of deposition resulting from glacial advance and retreat and that its sedimentary basin was created by marine transgression in response to a glacial retreat. Spatial distribution of the Espanola Formation suggests that its sedimentary basin may have consisted of at least three environmental zones. At least one of these zones may represent a glacial melt-water lake. A microfossil search was carried out with negative results. This made speculation necessary in determining the origin of the calcareous fraction of the Espanola Formation. A mechanism is suggested whereby calcium carbonate is precipitated inorganically, as a result of photosynthesis by anaerobic bacteria. This mechanism can be observed in the present. If it is true, then the Espanola Formation may represent a time marker for the first presence of free oxygen in the atmosphere.
