Nutrient enrichment (eutrophication) is an enormous subject matter in freshwater ecology. a few subject matters come and move, however the inevitable free up of phosphorus and nitrogen that ac­ businesses human presence turns out to make sure that eutrophication won't quickly turn into an superseded topic of analysis. Eutrophication increases concerns that diversity from the pressingly functional difficulties of phosphorus elimination to the very primary ecological questions surrounding organic neighborhood legislation by way of source provide. even though it is feasible to take a reductionist method of a few elements of eutrophication, the examine of eutro­ phication is essentially a department of environment ecology. to appreciate eutrophication in a given surroundings, one is unavoidably compelled to think about actual, chemical, and organic phenomena jointly. therefore whereas eutrophication is the focal point of our research of Lake Dillon, now we have assumed extensive base of lirnnological info is a prerequisite origin. Eutrophication of a lake will be studied strictly from a lirnnological viewpoint. if this is the case, the nutrient source of revenue of the lake is quantified however the assets are mixed inside of a black field whose basically vital function is overall loading. it's also attainable, despite the fact that, to regard the watershed and lake as both very important parts of a hybrid method. subsequently the nutrient assets has to be dissected and their variability and dependence on key components comparable to runoff needs to be quantified.

In 1982, penetration was not so deep; it began at about 5 m ,and slowly passed down to about 15 m. The larger flow of cold water to the metalimnion and continual heat Ice 8 Z 0.

In both years cooling of the epilimnion began in the last half of August. Cooling of the upper water column reduced the stability of stratification sufficiently to allow gradual erosion of the thermocline by late August or early September. In 1981 the thickness of the mixed layer had reached 15 m by the middle of September and 25 m by the middle of October. In 1982, the mixed layer had thickened to 10 m by the middle of September and 25 m by the middle of October. The stratification season ended with complete mixing during the first half of November in both 1981 and 1982.

This may have been caused either by light deprivation (due to light extinction by spring snow) or to nutrient depletion. An attempt to separate these effects will be made in Chapters 7 and 8.
