Hydrochemical and biogeochemical processes in Lake Khilganta were studied during more than ten years. The lake was shown to pass through periods of wetting and drying. This is accompanied by considerable changes in water chemistry and microbiological processes. During the passage from a wet to a dry period, lake water mineralization increases from 40 to 260 g/l and pH decreases from 9.9 to 7.1. At the same time, the isotope composition of organic matter carbon in bottom deposits becomes lighter… CONTINUE READING
