3 3 Dynamics of water quality parameters of potholes - Electric conductivity - Electrolyte poor potholes: B_BAP, E_20, E_19 Electrolyte rich potholes: E_6, B_205, L_17f

4 4 very softly 0-4°dH softly: 4-8°dH moderate hard:8-12°dH fairly hard: 12-18°dH hard: 18-30°dH very hard: >30°dH Water quality parameters of potholes - Electrolyte pollution -

5 5 Dynamics of water quality parameters of potholes - bioproduction and matter dynamics - Polytrophic pothole B-BFA 1993-1998 Characteristics of potholes eutrophication : - summer period: dense hydrophyte stands with reduced species number - winter period: maximum of algae - cyclic reduced oxygen: internal matter loading from the sediment

Eggersdorf (n=59) (2,5-2,9 = eutroph; 3,0-3,4 = high eutroph; 3,5-3,9 = polytroph; 4,0-4,4 = high polytroph) low trophic level within arable land = low matter loading disposition big potholes with wide buffer strips (high buffer capacity) small potholes within small slightly rolling catchment (low soil erosion) lacking of input from drainages soil ramparts at the upper shore (high buffer capacity)
