Abstract:

Dissolved nitrogen gas N2 contents of 12 southern California reservoirs were assessed during the summer of 1979. Eleven of the reservoirs were artificially destratified by compressed air injection at depths, while one reservoir was not artificially aerated. Destratification ranged from nearly complete to quite incomplete. The artificially aerated reservoirs could be categorized into four types of conditions based on their degrees of destratification and their dissolved N2 depth profiles. Author
