This special volume represents the current state of knowledge of the status of Crater Lake, an ecosystem essentially undisturbed by human activities. The lakeas natural dynamics and processes have been studied, including its special optical properties, algal nutrient limitations, pelagic bacteria, and models of the inter-relationships of thermal properties, nutrients, phytoplankton, deep-water mixing, and water budgets.The interaction of hydrocarbon fuel dispersion from marine engine use with the aquatic environment has been amply reviewed (e.g., Edgerton et al., 1987; English et al., 1963a, b; ...
