Phosphorus, carbon and nitrogen enrichment during sedimentation in a seasonally anoxic lake (Lake Lugano, Switzerland)


Phosphorus, carbon and nitrogen enrichment during sedimentation in a seasonally anoxic lake (Lake Lugano, Switzerland)



Journal of Limnology 61(2): 215-223



ISSN/ISBN: 1129-5767

Sedimentation fluxes of major nutrients are investigated during 1996 and 1997 at three different depths and two locations in eutrophic southern basin of Lake Lugano (Switzerland). Horizontal differences between the two sites are on the order of 10-40% (but can exceed 50%), whereas differences related to interannual oscillations range between 5 and 24%. Particulate organic carbon (POC) and nitrogen (PN) fluxes show a constant increase of 5-20% from the upper to the bottom trap.
