Abstract

Water quality properties and trophic status of Keban Dam Reservoir have been assessed in detail. The dissolved oxygen contours exhibited somewhat unusual behaviour of temporarily established intermediate layers of low dissolved oxygen concentrations. The phytoplankton species were identified and their composition was evaluated. The reservoir is eutrophic in general terms. However, lotic and limnetic zones of the reservoir have shown different trophic status.
