The Crucial Role of Dissolved Oxygen

Just as we breathe to survive, aquatic organisms rely on dissolved oxygen in water for their survival and well-being. The oxygen levels within a lake have a profound impact on everything from nutrient cycling to the abundance of aquatic species.

Low levels of dissolved oxygen can spell disaster for these ecosystems. They lead to the creation of “dead zones,” areas where aquatic life struggles to survive, dissolved phosphates are released, and water quality deteriorates. The consequences have a flow on effect throughout the ecosystem, affecting not only the creatures that call these waters home but also the communities that rely on these resources for food and recreation.

In the absence of oxygen, phosphorous previously bound to iron in an unreactive state in the sediment layer is released into the water column where aquatic weeds, algae, and cyanobacteria can use it to thrive. This can lead to eutrophic states and change the entire ecosystem of the lake.

How can we measure dissolved oxygen?
