Temperate lakes
Temperate lakes

  • Spring overturn:

    • warming & winds cause oxygen to be carried downward & nutrients to be carried to the surface.

  • During midsummer:

    • thermocline forms between upper layers & lower cooler layers.

    • Thermocline prevents vertical mixing between the warmer, oxygen-rich surface layer and the cold, oxygen-poor layer below it.

  • During fall overturn- thermocline sinks; water mixes vertically; dissolved oxygen moves down & nutrients move up.
