  • Summer surveys conducted on Lake Superior from 1996–2001 indicated that a deep chlorophyll maximum (DCM) is a common feature of the offshore waters. The DCM was usually observed in the upper hypolimnion between 23 and 35 m, a region lacking a pronounced density gradient. Chlorophyll a concentrations in the DCM were typically 1.5–2.5 (median = 2.0) times epilimnetic concentrations, although these were associated with minimal or no increases in particulate organic carbon concentrations.
