Lake Verevi, Estonia - A Highly Stratified Hypertrophic Lake by Toomas Kõiv, Ingmar Ott

By Toomas Kõiv, Ingmar Ott

This booklet summarises investigations on Lake Verevi (surface 12.6 ha, suggest intensity 3.6 m), positioned within the Estonian city of Elva, initiated given that 1929. The seventeen articles take care of a variety of questions, beginning with a holistic assessment of the ecological prestige, over exams of long term adjustments in biotic and abiotic stipulations and completing with proposed recovery plans. Abiotic chapters supply calculations on water and mass stability, distribution and fractions of phosphorus within the sediment, optical houses and penetration of radiation within the water column, sedimentation cost in the course of the formation of stratification, and nitrogen movement features. some of these phenomena clarify the particular environmental beneficial properties of this hugely stratified lake. long term adjustments, seasonal improvement, fundamental creation and source ratios inducing the distribution of species composition of assorted biota (bacterio-, phyto and zooplankton, periphyton, macrovegetation, macrozoobenthos, fish) are mentioned. crucial concerns are long term investigations on a fancy environment, the phenomenon of partial meromixis, the outline of recovery equipment, and the life of slim microniches for plankton within the water column. the quantity firmly establishes Lake Verevi as a version method of a common aquatic habitat, experiencing a mess of anthropogenic pressures, yet for which recovery plans goal to supply sustainable administration sooner or later.

Analysed by the method of Psenner et al. (1988), NaOH-RP was the smallest fraction in upper 7 cm. 9) times lower than that of BD-RP. Except of August 2001, NH4Cl-RP was the smallest of all fractions. In August 2001, the extreme concentration of NH4Cl-RP (526 lg g)1 DW) appeared in the depth of 4–5 cm constituting 39% of the sum of all phosphorus fractions in that sediment layer. The cores of June 2001, which were sampled from 6–8 m water depth, differed from other cores by comparatively high concentration of dry matter and low concentration of NaOH-NRP.

Introduction Phosphorus is the key element of eutrophication processes in many lakes. Phosphorus supply to the euphotic zone depends on the external load and also on the tendency of sediments to retain or release phosphorus. The intensity of water mixing and stratification play an important role in this process. Stratification may lead to anoxic conditions, lowered pH and accumulation of nutrients in both hypolimnion and surface sediments of eutrophic lakes. Total phosphorus concentration is a poor measure of the potential phosphorus release from sediments.

Correlation coefficients in Table 2 refer that relationships between OAS and apparent optical properties are often nonlinear. err. err. 3 m Here, Kd,PAR is the average for the whole upper water layer and c* PAR is measured from samples collected below surface. From this relationship it is possible to estimate values of the diffuse attenuation coefficient from laboratory measurements of c* PAR. This may be useful in some cases when field measurements are impossible due to bad weather. More complex model for such approximation for many Estonian lakes (including Verevi) is presented in Arst et al.
