The study was undertaken to describe seasonal dynamics of various physical and chemical parameters involved in plankton community metabolism and to relate findings to nutrient loading trends previously reported. The importance of various chemical parameters, especially phosphorous and nitrogen, to standing crop dynamics of net phytoplankton was evaluated in relation to physical parameters such as light, turbidity, circulation, and temperature. The major objective was compilation of baseline data and clarification of basic hydrodynamics so that the limnology of Flathead Lake might finally progress from a formative beginning to a status providing capability for informed management.
