Lake and reservoir management is very complex and it is not easy to understand all the problems connected with lake and reservoir management. This book not only presents good lake management strategy but also explains the strategy by the use of limnology, chemistry, biochemistry - using all scientific disciplines needed to understand lake problems, lake processes and the tools that can be applied to solve lake management problems. It should be underlined that the volume is not a textbook in limnology, but that it focuses on management of lake problems and their solution. It can be considered a high level textbook in lake management.
