Primary production

Although much research on primary production has been done in some aquatic systems, little has been done in the UMRS.

Primary production in the UMRS: Contrasts in dissolved oxygen dynamics, primary production, and respiration among aquatic areas of the UMRS. Primary production was be measured in backwater areas, main channel, and impounded areas. Ancillary data for production related parameters such as temmperature and dissolved oxygen. Project scope of work for Additional Program Element

Vegetation, primary production, and dissolved oxygen dynamics in UMRS backwater lakes. Primary production was measured in four backwater areas in Pool 8: two with abundant vegetation and two with little or no vegetation.Project scope of work for Additional Program Element
