Due to smaller density differences, layers of such algal suspensions can be resuspended much more readily in the water column than the soft sediments. The general conclusion may be drawn that, in shallow tropical lakes like Parakrama Samudra, the density effects of heating and cooling predominantly govern the daily mixis and recycling of particles and nutrients, except in seasons with a strong steady wind. Appendix The concept ofstatic potential energy in the stratification ofa lake: its alterations as driving and resisting forces in the dynamics of the stratification.
