Nutrient enrichment (eutrophication) is an enormous topic in freshwater ecology. a few subject matters come and cross, however the inevitable free up of phosphorus and nitrogen that ac­ businesses human presence turns out to make sure that eutrophication won't quickly develop into an superseded topic of research. Eutrophication increases matters that diversity from the pressingly sensible difficulties of phosphorus removing to the very basic ecological questions surrounding organic group rules through source offer. even though it is feasible to take a reductionist method of a few facets of eutrophication, the examine of eutro­ phication is essentially a department of atmosphere ecology. to appreciate eutrophication in a given surroundings, one is unavoidably pressured to think about actual, chemical, and organic phenomena jointly. therefore whereas eutrophication is the point of interest of our research of Lake Dillon, now we have assumed vast base of lirnnological info is a prerequisite origin. Eutrophication of a lake may be studied strictly from a lirnnological point of view. if that is so, the nutrient source of revenue of the lake is quantified however the assets are mixed inside of a black field whose simply vital function is overall loading. it's also attainable, even if, to regard the watershed and lake as both very important parts of a hybrid approach. for that reason the nutrient assets has to be dissected and their variability and dependence on key elements resembling runoff has to be quantified.

Physical Variables and Major Ion Chemistry of the Lake surface outlet remove water from points near the bottom of the lake, they have not been separated in Figure 10, nor need they be treated separately in any of the analyses. Spillway losses must be separated from other losses, however. In 1981 no water left the lake over the spillway, but in 1982 water left the lake over the spillway between 9 July and 4 November.

Phosphorus in Lake Water 47 in Figure 22. Comparable information is given in Figure 23 for the lower water column (40-45 m). There are some notable trends both in total phosphorus and in contributions of the fractions, especially in the surface layer. These trends can be understood for the most part in terms of the seasonal events occurring in the lake. Spring runoff coincided with some of the highest total phosphorus concentrations in both years. Rising levels of total phosphorus in spring were coincident with an increase in the contribution of particulate phosphorus.

Depth measured during the course of the study was 61 m but, because of the presence of the old river channel, some deeper spots are probably still present. Table 9 summarizes the lake volume, area , length of shoreline, and mean depth when the water is at spillway level. Hydrology We summarize here only the changes in lake level and total flow into and out of the lake. A more detailed consideration of the hydrology of individual watersheds will be taken up later in connection with the analysis of nutrient income to the lake.
