Abstract

Lake Biwa Research Institute (Japan) and Centre for Water Research (Australia) have jointly organized BITEX'93, which was held at Lake Biwa from August 21 to September 16, 1993 under the sponsorship of the Science and Technology Agency of Japan, the Local Government of Shiga Prefecture, and some Japanese companies with a strong interests in lake environmental problems. The experiment involved a total of 177 biologists, physicists, chemists, technologists, students and staffs from Australia, Canada, USA, China, lsrael, Spain, Korea and Japan. The aim of this experiment was to examine the mechanism of horizontal and vertical transport of mass, momentum and energy in a large in a lake such as Lake Biwa and to relate these mechanisms to the biogeochemical processes operating in the lake. Although many studies have been done during the experiment to clarify the mechanisms, only biogeochemical changes due to the transport between the North and the South Basins of Lake Biwa are reported here.
