Water-exchange Processes as Factor of the Energy Fluxes Formation in Ecosystems of the Dnieper Reservoirs

V. M. Timchenko
Institute of Hydrobiology, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kiev, Ukraine

ABSTRACT

The ecological and hydrodynamic regionalization of the Dnieper cascade reservoirs has been proposed, based on differences of genesis and dynamic characteristics of water masses in transit and not-transit zones. Intensity of water exchange in transit and not-transit zones of each Dnieper reservoir has been assessed. It is supposed that the intensity evaluation of water exchange processes can serve as a key to quantitative assessment of biotic balance and energy fluxes in the reservoirs' ecosystems.
