Seasonal variability of nutrients and productivity were examined in Pyramid Lake, a hyposaline, N-deficient, terminal desert lake, during a dry period. River inflow and N-fixation during 1990 were minimal allowing internal nutrient cycling to be more closely studied. Nutrient cycling was strongly affected by seasonal thermal stratification that was typical for a warm monomictic lake. Concentrations of nitrate, phosphate, and silicate in surface waters were highest during winter mixing and… CONTINUE READING
