  • The hydrophilic or hydrophobic characteristics of dissolved organic matter (DOM) from different origins in lake and river waters were investigated using spectrometric and chromatographic analyses of water samples. DOM in a deep, mesotrophic lake (Lake Unmun) was fractionated using three types of ion exchange resins and classified into aquatic humic substances (AHS), hydrophobic neutrals (HoN), hydrophilic acids (HiA), hydrophilic neutrals (HiN), and bases (BaS). The DOM fractionation provided insight into the understanding of the nature of heterogeneous DOM molecules present in different water sources. The UV/DOC ratios were determined for samples from the influent river and lake waters during DOM fractionation and incubation. AHS prevailed over DOM in the lake and river waters. After biodegradation, the relative contribution of AHS in the total DOM became more significant. It indicates that the AHS fraction would increase while water stay long time in the lake.

  • The variations of species compositions, standing crops and seasonal succession of phytoplanktons including Cyanophyceae, Chlorophyceae and Bacillariophyceae were investigated with physico-chemical elements of water to clarify the causes of water bloom according to the water depth in the Lake Unmun. The increased amounts of turbidity, T-N, T-P and SS originated from heavy rain and typhoon in the middle of June provoked to produce phytoplanktons. In July and August, the dominant species was Peridinium sp., while the subdominant species was Microcystis aeruginosa. In October, Aulacoseira distans was dominant and Asterionella formosa was subdominant. During the period of water shortage, the concentrated pollutants caused the decrease of precipitation, the long stagnation time of water body and the mixed pollutants by upwelling as decreasing water temperature could accelerate the water bloom. The preventives to decrease microalgal generation should be controled by the stagnation time of water body by increasing outflow to intercept water bloom such as ulacoseira sp. in October as well as summer.
