Lake metabolism: Relationships with dissolved organic carbon and phosphorus
Recent literature has suggested that for many lakes and rivers, the respiratory breakdown of organic matter (R) exceeds production of organic matter by photosynthesis (gross primary production [GPP])Expand

Lake metabolism and the diel oxygen technique: State of the science
Significant improvements have been made in estimating gross primary production (GPP), ecosystem respiration (R), and net ecosystem production (NEP) from diel, “free-water” changes in dissolved oxygenExpand

Ecological and Social Dynamics in Simple Models of Ecosystem Management
Simulation models were developed to explore and illustrate dynamics of socioecological systems. The ecosystem is a lake subject to phosphorus pollution. Phosphorus flows from agriculture to uplandExpand

A model of carbon evasion and sedimentation in temperate lakes
Lakes process terrigenous carbon. The carbon load processed by lakes may partially offset estimates made for terrestrial net ecosystem exchange (NEE). The balance within lakes between carbon burialExpand

Creating and maintaining high-performing collaborative research teams: the importance of diversity and interpersonal skills
Collaborative research teams are a necessary and desirable component of most scientific endeavors. Effective collaborative teams exhibit important research outcomes, far beyond what could beExpand

Small lakes dominate a random sample of regional lake characteristics
SUMMARY 1. Lakes are a prominent feature of the Northern Highland Lake District (NHLD) of Wisconsin, covering 13% of the landscape. Summarising the physical, chemical, or biological nature of NHLDExpand

A temperature compensation method for CDOM fluorescence sensors in freshwater
The effect of temperature on CDOM fluorescence was investigated in dystrophic freshwaters of Wisconsin and in aqueous standards. Laboratory experiments with two commercial in situ fluorometers showedExpand

Controls of δ13C‐DIC in lakes: Geochemistry, lake metabolism, and morphometry
We investigated d 13 carbon (C)‐dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) values in 72 lakes from diverse regions using literature data as well as new measurements for 32 lakes. d 13 C-DIC varied broadlyExpand

Using bioenergetics models to predict stable isotope ratios in fishes
To describe temporal dynamics of stable isotope ratios in fishes, we developed a bioenergetics-based model that links isotope ratios to growth, as influenced by fish size, temperature, diet, and preyExpand

Fate of Allochthonous Dissolved Organic Carbon in Lakes: A Quantitative Approach
Inputs of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) to lakes derived from the surrounding landscape can be stored, mineralized or passed to downstream ecosystems. The balance among these OC fates depends on aExpand
