Limnology

Biology of our waters


Limnology examines the ecology of water bodies. The main focus is on the following parameters:
The major aspects of applied limnology are wastewater treatment, water treatment, water pollution, water protection and water management.

Natural swimming pool waters are often in close proximity to agricultural land, by which turbidity, microorganisms and chemicals can be introduced into the water cycle. Additionally, disproportionate quantities of aquatic birds or the discharge of noxious substances, i.e. untreated waste water, can diminish water quality. Some of the introduced substances can serve as nutrients and thus can promote an unwanted mass development of algae or an immoderate growth of aquatic plants.
