During May-September 2000-2001, physicochemical data were collected from 241 lakes in Missouri, Iowa, northeastern Kansas, and southern Minnesota U.S.A., to determine the environmental variables associated with high concentrations of the cyanobacterial hepatotoxin microcystin (MC). The study region represents a south-north latitudinal gradient in increasing(More)

Ionic composition of waterbodies in central and southern Nepal sampled in spring 1985 differed from that normally found in freshwater. Distinguishing characteristics were: 1) predominance of bicarbonate among the anions — accounting for > 90% of the negative equivalents in two-thirds of the waterbodies, 2) the near absence of sulfates — accounting for < 1 %(More)
Natural and artificial lakes in the most recently glaciated portions of Iowa have significantly greater total ion concentrations than those in other areas of the state. A similar distribution was found for total nitrogen concentrations. Lake origin seems of greater importance than location in determining trophic state. As a group, the artificial lakes have(More)
Between April 1993 and November 1994, conductivity, cations, anions and suspended solids were measured at multiple sites in Taechung Reservoir, Korea. The major mechanism regulating ionic composition was dilution by monsoon rain and a resulting interflow current; these forces caused marked spatial and temporal heterogeneity. Ionic dilution was most(More)
Mean total suspended solids (TSS), in 135 Missouri reservoirs range from 1.2 to 47 mg/l. The volatile (VSS) and non-volatile (NVSS) fractions range from 0.6 to 9.6 mg/l and 0.5 to 37 mg/l, respectively. %NVSS is the larger fraction and declines through summer as %VSS increases. Suspended solids (particularly VSS) correlate with metrics of lake trophic state(More)

Environmental factors associated with spatiotemporal variation of microcystin (MC) in Mozingo Lake, a Missouri reservoir, were studied during summer 2001, and annual MC trends were characterized from May 2001-May 2002. MC increased during summer, ranging from 20 to1220 ng/L. Seasonal patterns in MC corresponded with chlorophyll >35 µm (Net Chl) and(More)
Graham, J.L. and J.R. Jones. 2007. Microcystin distribution in physical size class separations of natural plankton communities. Lake and Reserv. Manage. 23:161-168. Phytoplankton communities in 30 northern Missouri and Iowa lakes were physically separated into 5 size classes (>100 µm, 53-100 µm, 35-53 µm, 10-35 µm, 1-10 µm) during 15-21 August 2004 to(More)
Current hypotheses, based on physical and chemical theory, that account for bluegreen-blooms in lakes were evaluated in Taechung Reservoir, Korea, during May 1993–November 1994. Seasonal patterns of chlorophyll (Chl) were similar in 1993 and 1994, but the taxonomic composition and size structure of the phytoplankton communities differed between years.(More)
