Abstract

Interrelations between drainage area, lake area, length, mean breadth, mean depth, and maximum depth are examined in 262 rock basins and 137 basins lying in or dammed by glacial drift. The effect of lake dimensions upon the time taken for complete water replacement is calculated, and an illustration is given of the influence of lake area and mean depth upon the temperature of surface and bottom waters. No relation is evident between lake dimensions and the organic content (ignition loss) of the profundal muds.
