On the basis of an existing hydrologic model (trickle-down model), an ion budgets approach was applied to study the internal processes of Vandercook Lake in Wisconsin. The results indicated that alkalinity was produced by in-lake processes. Nitrogen transformations were significant, but their role in the acid-base budget was negligible because the acidifying influence of the ammonium loss was roughly balanced by the alkalizing effect of the nitrate loss. Sulfate reduction was important and accounted for 54% of the alkalinity production. (Copyright (c) 1987 American Chemical Society.)
