What are the causes of oxygen depletion?



  1. 0 Votes

    The rate of oxygen produced by plants during photosynthesis in a body of water depends on the amount of sunlight hitting the water. During midday the most oxygen is produced and plants that are closer to the surface of the water receiving more sunlight will be able to produce more oxygen. When the water is roughed up, during rain, flooding or a storm turnover occurs. Turnover is when debris and detritus from the bottom of the water floats up to the surface clouding the water, preventing sunlight from easily entering the water. This causes less oxygen to be produced in the water’s ecosystem.
