Title: The greening of Grasmere: its plankton periodicity in 1988
Author: C.S. Reynolds
Document Type: Monograph
This short annual report is the sixth in a series that commenced in 1984; it summarises the continuing observations on the water quality in Grasmere in relation to the loads and performance of the Grasmere STW. In many ways, the plankton behaviour during 1988 was typical for the lake over the last eighteen years or so, despite signs of an ongoing increase in nutrient concentrations, although the relative predominance of Chlorophyceae ("green algae") in the plankton is remarkable.
