A case of unusually high oxygen demand in a eutrophic lake

Abstract

An unusually high hypolimnetic water column BOD (WCBOD), roughly 40 times higher than the sediment oxygen demand (SOD), was observed in a small eutrophic lake and an adjoining lagoon. The mean 5-day WCBOD during thermal stratification in the lake was 29 and 49 g/m2 at 10 and 20 °C, respectively, while in the lagoon it was even higher (47 and 87 g/m2 at 10… (More)
