The 1980 study of Lake Huron was designed to provide extensive temporal and areal coverage of nutrient conditions throughout the lake. Water quality in Lake Huron was very good throughout most of the lake. This conclusion was based on an analysis of the spatial and temporal distribution of nutrients, chlorophll, and particulate materials. Nutrient concentrations in Lake Huron were low compared to the other Great Lakes, and the annual ranges of nutrient concentrations were small; these two aspects of the limnology of Lake Huron indicated an oligotrophic ecosystem. Although the water quality in Lake Huron was characterized as very good, local, nearshore nutrient loadings produced occasional regions of poor water quality.
