Seasonal variation in oxygen consumption was measured in the sediments and in two species of benthic macroinvertebrates in two areas of Ham's Lake (Payne Co., OK). One area stratified in summer and the other area was mixed by pumping surface water to the bottom. The percent organic matter and oxygen consumption of the sediments were highest in the anoxic hypolimnion than in the mixed central pool. The rate of oxygen consumption of Chironomus riparius (Meigen) increased in summer In the mixed… Expand
