Abstract

The AA describe some of the physical and chemical attributes of eleven meromictic marine lakes in Palau, of which 8 are on the island of Mecherbar, 2 are on the island of Koror, and 1 is on the island of Urukthapel. They also describe a holomictic marine lake from Mecherbar and a marine lake with a variable pattern of tidal mixing from Gologuguel Island, which are important for the discussion. Their emphasis is on water-column stratification, patterns of tidal mixing, and temporal stability of selected lakes over a period of 18 years. The AA. make brief remarks throughout about the biology of some of the lakes
