Summary

Data from lakes on the Kenai Peninsula (n = 111) and in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley (n = 108) show that takes near the Cook Inlet, Alaska are moderately stained, with low turbidity and are predominately oligotrophic with a potential for phosphorus limitation. In both locations measures of salinity (as measured by conductivity) and PH were heterogenous and tied to hydrologic flowpaths. Overall, seepage lakes had lower PH, salinity, alkalinity, Ca, Mg and Si than drainage takes. In our data set, both seepage and drainage lakes on the Kenai had lower alkalinity, Ca, and Si than corresponding lake types in Mat-Su. Most zooplankton biomass (ZB) measurements in the Cook Inlet lakes were <100 mug . L-1 and over one-third were <10 mug . L-1. [...]
