Summary

Data from 129 shallow riverine takes within the Yukon Flats National Wildlife Refuge (between 65degrees 45degreesN and 67degrees 30degreesN and 142degrees 30degreesW and 150degrees 00'W) are presented as a baseline contribution to the regional limnology of Alaska. Ion composition reflected the composition of carbonate alluvium within the region; in most lakes Ca > Mg and bicarbonate dominated the anions (similar to90%). In lakes where alkali deposits occurred, Na, Mg and bicarbonate were the principal ions. Some 25% of the takes were slightly brackish (conductivity >500 S) to brackish. The lakes are colored, with 18 to 447 Pt-units. And, they are fertile, with over 70% classified as eu-or hypereutrophic on the basis of their nutrient [...]
