Large Iconic Lakes


Shawn Devlin, Flathead Lake Biological Station


The Large Lakes Initiative of the MtnSEON held an organizational teleconference in March 2012. That meeting resulted in a set of priority ecological topics: food-web dynamics; nutrient dynamics (including heavy metals); and within-lake physical processes, particularly heat budgets. These ecological processes are to be coupled with social/economic systems using the lakes as integrators of watershed changes.

Examples of questions include: 1) How do changes in water quality drive social perceptions and economic values of large lakes and how best model the integration of social and ecological processes? 2) What are the consequences of increasing N-loading on food web dynamics and how is N-loading interactive with legacy ions, particularly toxic metals?
