For a lake-wide investigation of littoral surface sediments, we collected approximately 800 samples from Lake Constance along 235 parallel transects of 1 km distance along the shore at water depths of 1, 2, 4 and 8 m. Sediment samples were analyzed for the presence of spatial patterns in mineralogical and granulometric composition and contents of carbon and sulphur, with the purpose of identifying general and lake specific processes that contribute to the observed patterns. In particular, we… CONTINUE READING
