Abstract

River regulation increasingly involves artificial flow manipulation. Preliminary data are presented to describe the changes of water chemistry associated with seven releases from Llyn Celyn, Wales. Complex, but characteristic, variations of conductivity, calcium and nitrate-nitrogen concentrations occur during wave passage. These variations do not appear to relate to kinematic wave movement alone, but to variations of suspended solids (organic and inorganic) concentrations suggesting that in-channel “sources” may be influential.
