Title: Temperature and dissolved oxygen stratification in the lake Rudrasagar: Preliminary investigations

Abstract: Temperature drives the major physico-chemical and biological actions in inland water bodies. The higher the water temperature, the greater the biogeochemical activity influenced by the environmental intrinsic and extrinsic parameters. Temperature also controls the dynamics of sustainability of various aquatic organisms that live in lakes and reservoirs, though higher life forms, such as fish, insects, zooplankton, phytoplankton, and other aquatic species all have a recommended temperature variety. The increase in water temperature due to the increase in atmospheric air temperature results in lake water column stratification and the dissolved oxygen level variation in aquatic systems are greatly affected. The vertical distributions of dissolved oxygen in the water column are highly dependent due to change in vertical temperature gradient. In the present paper, an effort has been made to investigate the impact of temperature stratification on dissolved oxygen variability in the Rudrasagar, a natural lake in western Tripura. The changes in dissolved oxygen distribution in this natural lake will give us an idea of regional lake health condition and will also establish the need of further large scale research concerning the development of a biophysical-coupled model.
