Abstract: In 1984, water temperature and pH in the Winam Bay fluctuated little between the months. At any given time, the difference between surface and bottom temperature did not exceed 1.6 C. Secchi disc visibilities were persistently low during the year with a maximum value of 0.71 m. Oxygen concentrations within the water column fell sharply below 1.5m. The highest primary productivity by algae measured was 1.26g at 1200 hours. Microcystis was the most abundant algae encountered in the lake water.
