Lakes Findley, Chester Morse and Sammamish, Washington, are characterized

diatoms) with usually no or low fall activity. Vernal outbursts were
often delayed in the monomictic lakes by inadequate light because of
unfavorable climate and/or a lack of thermal stratification. Strong...
Sample collection to define the phytoplankton biomass and productivity in Lakes Findley, Chester Morse, and Sammamish was conducted according to the schedule In Figure 1. Methods and procedures are the same as those
used in 1972 (Welch et al. 1972). The purpose of such sampling is to provide validation data...
