We may thus justify reference henceforth to the upper mixolimnion and lower monimolimnion of Laguna de Guatavita.
The meromictic stratification and the substantially hypoxic condition of the monimolimnion surely benefit ammonification, leading to relatively high values of ammonia and phosphates in deep water.
The total PFC concentrations at depths of 2 and 10 m (both located within the mixed layer) did not differ significantly from one another, but both were significantly higher than the total PFC concentrations at 32 m, in the monimolimnion, which were close to our MDLs (two-way ANOVA: F = 27.
It is a deep (maximum 489m), meromictic lake, with oxic mixolimnion up to 70m and a deep monimolimnion rich in dissolved gases, particularly methane [9].
On the other hand, the word MONIMOLIMNION is the longest possible word that can be formed from the letters of 20 different windows, attributable to the fact that the word's letters are spread across a relatively small part of the alphabet, I-O.
