How to spot a lake, and why you should never let yourself be caught in the wrong moment.
It’s the sort of thing that you might expect to see in a horror movie, or a science fiction novel, but it’s also something that should come as no surprise to anyone who’s ever spent a few minutes in a lake.
Here, we look at the differences between the two, the differences in water chemistry and the different ways they can affect a lake’s water quality.
Water chemistry and water chemistry in lakes and streams What is the difference?
Lake water is typically a combination of both carbon dioxide and dissolved oxygen (O2) – two gases that make up the water’s bulk.
Carbon dioxide and O2 are present in lakes from time to time but only in the form of CO2, which is dissolved in the water.
When the water is high in CO2 it becomes a poor absorber of O2, leaving it with a lower pH.
The pH of lakes and rivers is typically higher than the pH of the ocean.
This is because of the different way water in a river reacts with sunlight.
In lakes, the water can take on a greenish colour because the oxygen in the dissolved gas is oxidised to O2.
This causes the water to become slightly cloudy.
This colour is also the result of the reaction between CO2 and the oxygen that is in the liquid in the lake.
This reaction happens as the water reacts with CO2.
What happens in the lakes?
A lake that has high levels of CO 2 in the air, or in the groundwater, can become cloudy, as does a lake with low levels of O 2 in its water.
This happens because the CO2 in the atmosphere is reacting with the dissolved oxygen in water.
The water becomes more acidic and more alkaline.
The alkaline water in the surface water then becomes a dark brown colour, which also happens when the water in lakes reacts with oxygen in its dissolved gas.
This means that the water that’s in the bottom of the lake is less acidic, and therefore less alkaline than the surface waters in the surrounding areas.
This dark brownness in the sedimentary layer is due to a breakdown of the mineral O2 in lakes.
The result is a dark grey colour, or black, colour in the sediments, as shown in the picture below.
How do lakes and stream systems differ?
The two most obvious differences between a lake and a stream system are the presence of large amounts of dissolved oxygen and the amount of dissolved CO2 dissolved in lakes (although there are other differences as well).
In a lake that’s low in dissolved oxygen, the surface is covered with a thin layer of dissolved O 2 .
When the oxygen is dissolved, it’s absorbed by the surface of the water, and the O 2 is left behind.
This results in a layer of CO² and CO 2 2 which forms a dark layer in the soil.
This CO² is dissolved by the water and is left in the same place as the oxygen it absorbed.
In a stream, this is due mainly to the fact that the surface area of the stream is larger.
It has a lower dissolved oxygen concentration, so the water at the bottom has a higher dissolved CO² concentration than the water above it.
This also means that a stream will have more dissolved CO 2 than a lake if the lake’s surface water is higher in dissolved O2 and less in dissolved CO3.
In rivers, the dissolved O and CO2 concentrations are lower, because they are less dissolved in rivers than in lakes, and there’s a lower amount of CO 3 in the rivers.

The most obvious difference between a lakes and a streams system is the amount and type of dissolved organic material in the waters.
Lakes contain dissolved organic matter that comes from the decomposition of organic matter in the subsurface and is a by-product of the oxygenation process.
In streams, this dissolved organic substance is a result of algae and algae photosynthesis.
The amount of oxygen is the result from the reaction of the O and the CO 2 which is in organic matter.
The number of dissolved dissolved organic substances is a measure of the concentration of dissolved carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) and O in the deep water of a stream.
The higher the number, the higher the concentration.
A lake’s bottom is also covered with dissolved organic carbon dioxide.
As a result, the oxygen content in the streams is higher than that of lakes, because there’s more dissolved organic CO 2 .
The difference in water quality between a stream and lake is important because the water quality of a lake is affected by both water chemistry (how the dissolved CO and O are reacting) and water quality in the ecosystem (how much
