Wind calm, light rain

 On 5/3 East Pond is well mixed from top to bottom as illustrated by the uniform temperature and oxygen profiles shown below.   The fluorescence is high in the lake, consistent with the shallow Secchi depth.  The lake is relatively cold, but could warm up quickly with a few warm, sunny days.   Given the shallow Secchi depth, we expect most of the warming to occur in the top 2-3 meters.   Significant rain or wind events will distribute the heat deeper in the lake.
