It was observed in a eutrophic reservoir that metalimnion was deoxygenated and kept anaerobic during heating season while hypolimnion was successfully aerated. It was investigated in this study what brought the metalimnion deoxygenation. The fact that dissolved oxygen decreased faster in the sidearm than in the main reservoir suggests that oxygen consumption by the sediments might be one of the deoxygenation mechanisms. The additional mechanism of deoxygenation is considered to be decomposition… CONTINUE READING
