Many alpine lakes regularily feature deep water bodies that are not entirely mixed in overturn events. The incomplete circulation may impair lake water quality. In a joint and multidisciplionary project with three Italian partner institutions, IGB researchers are investigating the impact of mixing patterns in North Italian Lake Iseo. In the long-term, the projects aims for specific managment recommendations that may help to improve the lakes trophic state in a changing climate. The project is funded by the CARIPLO foundation (http://www.fondazionecariplo.it/) and runs over three successive years. Researchers of IGBs Department Chemical Analytics and Biogeochemistry launched a first sampling campaign of lake Iseo - 250 m deep with a surface area of 65 km² in early April of 2016.
