Wind Effects in Shallow Lakes

  • Wind Effects in Shallow Lakes | NALMS LakeLine Fall 2012
  • Wind energy drives spring and fall turnover in stratified lakes, brings nutrients from deeper waters into the epilimnion, and transports nutrients and particulate material both vertically and horizontally in the ecosystem. Here we identify effects that wind can have on phytoplankton in shallow lakes, and illustrate with examples of four well-known lakes from around the world.
