Limnology, Dodital Lake



Present investigations were carried out on the limnological aspects of Dodital Lake in district Uttarkashi (Garhwal Himalaya). Many of the parameters were found below the permissible limits for drinking water as suggested by WHO. A total of 11 parameters were analyzed and their seasonal variations in the year 2004-2005 were discussed.
