Secchi Disk Transparency Graphs

Graph Legend: Secchi symbols = average Secchi Disk Transparency Values; tick marks = maximum and minimum values for each year.

Water Chemistry and Trophic State Parameters

Table Legend:

Color: Color (SPU), Alk: Alkalinity (mg/l CaCO3), SpCon: Specific Conductivity (\(\mu\)S/cm), pH: pH (standard units)

TP = Total Phosphorus (\(\mu\)g/L) – EC: Epilimnion Core, SG: Surface Grab, BG: Bottom Grab, PG: Profile Grab

SDT = Secchi Disk Transparency (m) – Min: minimum value, Avg: average value, Max: maximum value, n: number of months with Secchi readings per year, b: number of times Secchi disk was observed touching the bottom of the lake per year

Chl = Chlorophyll-a (\(\mu\)g/L) – Min: minimum value, Avg: average value, Max: maximum value
