Kr u e g e r Chapter 15 INTRODUCTION Natural lakes are important resources throughout North America and contribute substantial economic benefits to people through fishing, boating, swimming, and other recreational uses. A comparison of the relative magnitude of available allochthonous and narrative reviews have concluded there is overwhelming evidence terrestrial inputs dominate the carbon budgets of many oligotrophic lakes total iron, and total phosphorus: The Dorset, Ontario, study, – J Geophys Res , G, doi
In the Great Lakes of North America some $10 million dollars were spent between and to quantify the relative impacts of point versus non-point sources. That exercise proved enormously successful and specific policies were adopted for nutrient control in each lake basin that reflected the relative contributions from each type of source. Two case studies were examined to test the guidance framework for phosphorus. For the first, on Lake Simcoe, Ontario, a baseline TP level of micrograms per litre of water was set because these are ideal levels for a cold water fishery. So, the lake was placed in the oligotrophic trigger range ( micrograms per litre of water).
Blooms of filamentous benthic algae that plagued Lake Erie in the s through s were largely reduced through reductions of phosphorus (P) loading from point sources. Since the mids, these blooms have returned despite a period of relatively stable external P inputs. While increased loadings of dissolved P have been causally linked to cyanobacterial blooms in some parts of the lake. Benthic diatoms often predominate in undisturbed shallow, oligotrophic lakes, particularly at high elevations, due to high transparency and sedimentary nutrient sources [46,47,57]. However, algal communities can shift from benthic to planktonic assemblages in response to warming [ 58 ] or nutrient influx [ 7, 27, 59 ].

Toxic Algal Bloom, Lake Eire, (Credit: NASA) The green scum shown in this image is the worst algal bloom Lake Erie has experienced in decades. Such blooms were common in the lake’s shallow western basin in the s and 60s. Phosphorus from farms, sewage, and industry fertilized the waters so that huge algae blooms developed year after year.
The first five years of broadscale monitoring of Ontario’s inland lakes shows that all regions in Ontario have a similar pattern with respect to total phosphorus concentrations, with 50% of the lakes having concentrations less than approximately nine micrograms per litre and with 90% of the lakes less than approximately 17 micrograms per litre.
The new paradigm renews interest in the degree to which plankton communities are molded in composition by small differences in relative availability of N and P, the mechanisms that lead to a high frequency of N limitation in oligotrophic lakes, and the failure of aquatic N‐fixers to compensate significantly for N deficiency under most conditions.
1. Introduction. Lake Simcoe is the largest lake in Southern Ontario, after the Great Lakes, with a surface area of km 2 and is situated 50 km north of the city of Toronto ().The lake has been subjected to anthropogenic disturbances for several decades and the integrity of its ecosystem has been challenged (Winter et al., ; Young et al., ).
Phosphate is an important nutrient that restricts microbial production in many freshwater1,2,3 and marine environments4,5,6. The actual concentration of phosphate in phosphorus-limited waters is.

Phosphate (PO 4 3 −) is a dominant form of inorganic phosphorus in natural waters, but concentrations are often near or below detection in pristine waters (about 1–10 µg/L).Determining the precise level of phosphate is difficult because standard methods of analysis also detect a variable and.

Lake ecosystems respond rapidly to nutrient alterations, particularly in oligotrophic alpine Lakes where a small change in absolute concentration can mean a large change in relative availability.
Here we examine the nutrient status (i.e., N:P) of naturally oligotrophic lakes in both hemispheres and compare these results to nutrient deposition. Some scientists have categorized trophic status according to phosphorus concentration.
Lakes with phosphorus concentrations below mg/L are classified as oligotrophic, phosphorus concentrations between and mg/L are indicative of mesotrophic lakes, and eutrophic lakes have phosphorus concentrations exceeding mg/L (Muller.Atmospheric nutrient loading through wet and dry deposition is one of the least understood, yet can be one of the most important, pathways of nutrient transport into lakes and reservoirs.
Nutrients, specifically phosphorus and nitrogen, are essential for aquatic life but in excess can cause accelerated algae growth and eutrophication and can be a major factor that causes harmful algal blooms.estuaries, lakes and reservoirs.
