We investigate the carbon cycle in Lake Washington for the year 1980 using monthly measurements of the dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and its 13C : r2C isotopic composition. Mass balances of DIC and its 13C : 12C yield estimates of CO, gas exchange rates and net organic carbon production rates. Between 24 June and 13 August, the calculated CO, gas invasion rate of 0.80 x lo6 mol C d-l is nearly equal to the river DIC inflow rate. The calculated epilimnetic net organic carbon production rate… CONTINUE READING
