By Tamar Zohary, Assaf Sukenik, Tom Berman, Ami Nishri

This condensed quantity summarizes up-to-date wisdom at the warm-monomictic subtropical Lake Kinneret, together with its geophysical atmosphere, the dynamics of actual, chemical and organic strategies and the main usual and anthropogenic components that have an effect on this particular aquatic atmosphere. This paintings expands on a prior monograph on Lake Kinneret released in 1978 and capitalizes at the consequence of greater than forty years of study and tracking actions. those have been intensively built-in with lake administration geared toward sustainable use for offer of ingesting water, tourism, sport and fishery. The booklet chapters are geared toward the limnological neighborhood, aquatic ecologists, managers of aquatic ecosystems and different pros. It offers the geographic and geological atmosphere, the meteorology and hydrology of the zone, maintains with a number of facets of the pelagic and the littoral structures. eventually, the final part of the ebook addresses lake administration, demonstrating how the accrued wisdom was once utilized with the intention to deal with this significant resource of freshwater. The part at the pelagic process contains the guts of the publication, addressing the foremost actual approaches, exterior and inner loading, the pelagic groups (from micro organism to fish), physiological tactics and the key biogeochemical cycles within the lake.
