Impact of physical processes on the spatial distribution of phytoplankton in a subalpine lake : This seminar is part of the Centre for Water Research seminar series. Other events...
An understanding of how the physical habitat influences phytoplankton behaviour is critical to the ecological health of deep lakes in the face of global warming and increased nutrient loading.

In this talk I will present the phytoplankton concentrations observed in Lake Iseo, a deep subalpine lake located in northern Italy, during the July 2010 bloom season and derive a patch categorization and growth interpretation based on the time scale hierarchy of physical and biological processes. By estimating the time scales, I will develop a general framework of the spatial distribution of phytoplankton concentration in Lake Iseo and illuminate the characteristics of their ecological niches.
