Fayetteville Green Lake (FGL) is located in the Green Lakes State Park near Fayetteville, NY and is a an excellent example of a meromictic lake. Unlike typical lakes, the water column in a meromictic lake does not “turn over” and therefore remains permanently stratified. The lower water layer (below 20m) in FGL is devoid of oxygen and significantly colder than the upper oxygenated water. Another unusual aspect of this lake is the presence of reef-like structures called bioherms or thromabalitic microbialites. The unusual aspects of this lake have been studied since 1838 and continues today.

The papers and projects in this collection highlight the unique nature of Green Lake. Previously unpublished datasets are included that scientists have collected to provide a long term record of the changing water conditions of this important meromictic lake.
