Biological Analysis of Water Quality in the Noril'sko-Pyasinskaya System

Abstract

The results of studying the concentration of chlorophyll in the water suspension (analysis of biomass, number, and species composition of phyto- and zooplankton) are used to estimate the trophic characteristics and saprobity of water bodies and streams of the Noril'sko-Pyasinskaya System. It has been found that during the period of the most intense operation of the Noril'sk Mining and Metallurgical Plant, the minimum values of plankton number and biomass become typical of the southern part of Pyasino Lake. The state of biota during extraordinary late spring flood and especially cold trans-polar summer has been studied.
