The Role of Allochthonous Inputs of Dissolved Organic Carbon on the Hypolimnetic Oxygen Content of Reservoirs

Abstract

Hypolimnetic oxygen content in lentic ecosystems has traditionally been modeled as a function of variables measured at the epilimnion, or that are supposed to drive epilimnetic processes, like total phosphorus load. However, in man-made reservoirs the river inflow can plunge into deep layers, directly linking the hypolimnion with the surrounding watershed… (More)
