While these waters are major causes of environmental pollution and are toxic to the majority of prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms, some life forms (mostly bacteria and archaea) thrive within them.

December DOI: /RG 1. Introduction. Mining pit voids are a common legacy of open cut mining worldwide (Castro and Moore, ).These voids may fill with ground and surface water to create a pit lake having a post-mining potential for a range of beneficial end uses (McCullough et al., ; McCullough and Lund, ).However, the end use is generally restricted by poor water quality in the pit lake (McCullough Cited by: Thus, lake stratification or vertical structure of lake/ water body is important from ecology and limnology view point.

In general, the water density, the effect of changes in temperature and the effect of changes in salinity (from upper layer to lower layer) are significant for the mining pit lake.

Now in its second edition, Pollution of Lakes and Rivers provides essential insights into present-day water quality problems from an international perspective. Explains simply and effectively how lake sediments can be used to reconstruct pollution history; Includes over additional references and a new chapter on recent climatic change and its effects on water quality and quantityCited by: I strongly recommend this book to all professionals involved in pit lake planning, mine closure, and ongoing pit lake management, to researchers working in acidic pit lakes, and to limnologists who wish to understand the impact of acidification on lake processes.” (C.

Moreover, despite the temperature effect, biological activity has been detected in Arctic mine tailings at temperatures as low as −4 °C and oxygen uptake due to pyrite oxidation at temperatures down to −11 °C.
