Wisconsin DNR — Understanding Lake Data
This “Guide was written to help people understand information about lake water quality and to interpret lake data. Each lake possesses a unique ‘personality,’ or set of physical and chemical characteristics which may change over time. Lakes exhibit chemical changes on a daily basis while other changes, such as plant and algae growth, occur seasonally.” It discusses physical characteristics, chemical properties, dissolved gases, carbonate systems, includes bibliography, references and glossary.
