Secchi disk — chlorophyll relationships in a lake with highly variable phytoplankton biomass

  title={Secchi disk — chlorophyll relationships in a lake with highly variable phytoplankton biomass},
  author={Max M. Tilzer},
In meseutrophic Lake Constance mean euphotic phytoplankton chlorophyll concentrations vary about 100-fold over the year. Concomitant fluctuations in euphotic depth (Zeu) and Secchi depth (Zs) are related to each other in a non-linear fashion that as a rough approximation can be expressed by Zeu ∼ 5 √Zs. Secchi depth is to a great extent a function of beam attenuation of light which depends on the inherent optical properties of the water and is highly sensitive to light scattering from particles… CONTINUE READING
