Kvitåvatn lake when the spring melt

When the snow starts melting in the spring, it also triggers the lake Kvitåvtn´s spring turnover: the water near the surface is replaced with the water near the bottom to establish a homogenous mixture. This seasonal movement of water impacts directly on the aquatic plant and animal life.
