SCOPE NOTE

  • The water column is also referred to as the "pelagic zone", which may be broken down to different depth zones, with characteristic conditions and biota. The water column is often referred to in the environmental context with respect to "water quality"; the various physicochemical properties that make it suitable or unsuitable for aquatic life. (en)
