As a result of the past three years of field studies and our interpretation of these and other data from the literature, we conclude that there are inputs of hydrothermal fluids into the bottom of Crater Lake. The dissolved materials associated with these thermally and chemically enriched fluids, coupled with...
During the summers of 1967 and 1968 the horizontal distribution and did vertical migrations of zooplankton were studied within the unique environment of Crater Lake. Sampling of the horizontal
distribution was done by towing plankton nets vertically in different locations. The vertical distribution was sampled by towing at different depths...
The species compositions and densities of the littoral and pelagic zooplankton
assemblages in Crater Lake were compared. The littoral and pelagic zooplankton
assemblages of most lakes are typically different due to different habitat conditions in the
two zones. The littoral zone of Crater Lake lacks many of the habitat characteristics,...
During the Pleistocene, an andesitic volcano named Mount
Mazama grew to a probable elevation of 3000 meters in south-
central Oregon. Near the end of the Pleistocene, three diverse
magma types appeared in the eruptive products associated with Mount
Mazama: l)High-alumina basaltic andesite magma associated with an
early plateau and...
The identification and mapping of surface cover types
within Crater Lake National Park, Oregon, has been effectively
completed through the utilization of LANDSAT digital
data and NASA U-2 color infrared aerial photography. Classification
of LANDSAT data for surface cover type identification
and mapping was accomplished through use of the
Streamflow forecasts are essential to the optimal operation of
hydroelectric and irrigation reservoirs in the Pacific Northwest.
Satellite snow cover observations would aid in these streamflow forecasts
by providing snow cover data at regular time intervals. Unfortunately,
satellite capability to remotely sense mountain snow cover
conditions is indeterminate due to...
This study describes the soils, vegetation and age structure
of the Pinus contorta forests of Crater Lake National Park. Growth
rates of P. contorta, and levels of infection and impact of dwarf
mistletoe (Arceuthobium americanu1r) on growth of P. contorta
individuals are compared among communities.
Vegetation description is based on...
