Title: Disturbing the season's due: plankton periodicity in Grassmere, 1987
Author: C.S. Reynolds
Document Type: Monograph
This short report continues a series of annual unpublished accounts to North West Water, describing the phytoplankton and certain associated water-quality criteria in Grasmere. The present report summarises the key events in the lake during 1987 and shows how the planktonic community responded. It will be argued that these responses have remained entirely consistent with previous deductions about the lake, that is that weather and, especially, rainfall events dominate the dynamic behaviour of its plankton. The forward projection of its behaviour is briefly reassessed.
