The physics of mixing in deep temperate lakes is strongly constrained by the existence of a temperature of maximum density for fresh water; and by the pressure dependence of that temperature. The world's deepest lake is well suited to the study of such deep-water renewal processes, and also to the determination of the rates of renewal using time-dependent chemical tracers. The mean rates of biological recycling of oxygen, carbon and nutrients for the entire lake can then also be determined.
