Abstract

The primary production of the Loosdrecht Lakes, L. Breukeleveen and L. Vuntus is described. A comparison is made between the values found in 1983 (a year with a considerable inlet of phosphorus-rich water, and those of 1984 (when the inlet water was dephosphorized). Production rates in L. Breukeleveen and L. Vuntus were significantly lower than in the Loosdrecht Lakes. This was partly ascribed to horizontal mass transport. The annual production in 1984 was not significantly lower than in 1983.
