Abstract

Lakes are an important part of many people's lives. At their best, they enrich our lives, providing sustenance, opportunities for recreation, and aesthetic relief. This chapter examines qualities of lakes in relation to specific uses, and then examines drivers of change that alter these qualities, for better or worse. This broad view of lake quality differs from the traditional engineering/limnology approach of the past few decades in which 'clarity' has been an overarching objective, often to the detriment of broader qualities.
