Preliminary observations of the hydromechanics, nutrient cycles and eutrophication status of Lake Kinneret (Lake Tiberias)

Publication date1969
Abstract

With the establishment of a new limnological laboratory at Tabgha, on the shores of the Lake Kinneret, a number of projects have been undertaken recently to study different aspects of the lake. As well as a detailed routine survey, we have initiated studies on topics relating to the hydrodynamics, and the chemical and biological dynamics of the water and sediments. Lake Kinneret is located in the Jordan Valley graben at -209 m below MSL. It is 22 km long on the N.S. axis and 12 km wide. The maximum depth is 42 m and the mean depth is 24 m. The extreme temperatures of the water mass are 14° C and 30° C. The waters are stratified from May to December and the hypolimnion is depleted of oxygen during most of this period.
