A whole lot of water movement this week with ground water level rising and 5 or so inches of rain since last report.

I see the D.O. readings are pretty close to the same. Do you think that is because of all the rain? Is the D.O. saturation point of water the same at 70 degrees as it is at 40 degrees?


Good morning Dave, I've checked the ships systems, and everything appears to be running normally.

No - colder water holds more O2.

ewest - The D.O. is actually above saturation levels by the graph I got from Dr Dave. I assume that is possible given all the vertical water movement in an out of the pond along with the rain, winds and zoo plankton activity.

I have seen it before but super-saturation is rare here.

Yes it can be like you describe. My answer was is the saturation level static - no it changes with temp. and cold water has a higher saturation level. It can be over 100% saturation level at which point it starts looking to give off the excess O2.

Yes, I concurred with your D.O. water temperature correlation. I was just commenting further on the latest observation numbers.

It doesn't happen very often or last long. I would have to go back through years of data to answer your question.

The good part is that I have accumulated years of data. smile

See if you know why the bottom DO dropped so much. You may want to look at the Flash Flood for a helpful hint. wink

There are plants that grow in the deeper water though the population is small and they don't grow very tall. I call them scrub weeds and haven't ever taken the time to ID one of them.

The photos are individual frames in an animated GIF file.

Summer is here in full force. The surface temperature is up 9 degrees in a week with clarity down 26 inches in the same week. D.O. is good.

Funny your pond (5.1 acres) and Big Spirit Lake (5,684 acres) are the same temp. What is happening with the summer weeds? Has the ultra high water made them less dense than usual?

Plant growth that has reached the surface is in decline. A few more weeks will really the tale due to the water temperatures finally getting to the normal range for this time of the year.

The pond appears well positioned to get through the heat wave that is supposed to be gripping the upper Midwest the next several days. It is a hot wet heat......

How are the mosquitoes this year? Aren't they on steroids in Minnesota?

We don't have any because our barn swallows eat several million each day.

Our dragonfly crop has been massive this year, and we have hardly seen a mosquito despite all the rain. Link?

You will have to flush out the dragonfly project since there are few of them here. Could it be that since the swallows eat all the skeeters the dragonfly can't compete?
