Title Influence of Las Vegas Wash density current on nutrient availability and phytoplankton growth in Lake Mead
Creator Baker, John R. Paulson, Larry J.
Description Density currents are commonly formed in reservoirs because of temperature or salinity induced density differences between inflowing and receiving waters. Anderson and Pritchard (1951) were among the first to demonstrate this in their investigations of density currents in Lake Mead. They found that the Colorado River formed an underflow in Lake Mead during the winter, an overflow in the spring and an interflow in the summer and fall. Wunderlich and Elder (1973) have since described the...
