|The temporal and vertical distributions of inorganic carbon and related forms were assessed for the mixolimnion of Green Lake, Jamesville, NY based on a biweekly monitoring program conducted for a 14-month period. The daily time structure of the distributions was delineated for a single diurnal cycle. Attendant [H2CO3] ([H2CO3] + [CO2 (aq)]) and calcite equilibrium conditions were determined through a solution of equilibrium equations, adjusted for temperature and ionic-strength. Inorganic carbon equilibrium conditions within the iron-rich chemocline/monolimnion were evaluated with the aid of a computer model, which incorporated ion-pair interactions, utilizing data obtained from a single sampling.
