Holomictic lakes are lakes that have a uniform temperature and density from top to bottom at a specific time during the year, which allows the lake waters to completely mix.
Holomictic lakes are non-meromictic lakes.
There are four types of holomictic lakes:
- amictic lakes,
- polymictic lakes,
- Cold monomictic lakes,
- Warm monomictic lakes,
- dimictic lakes
- oligomictic lakes
