Petty's "Green Lake State Park" in People and Places: Fayetteville, Manlius, Minoa and Neighbors (Manlius Historical Society, 1991, Vol. II, pp. 127-144). He provides excellent information on geology and his history also covers area work performed by the Civilian Conservation Corps, migrant workers and German prisoners of World War II among other interesting items."EAS 11:50, 24 December 2006 (UTC)

Book contains a lengthy appreciation of the Robert Trent Jones golf course at Green Lakes: p. 181, "But the original little masterpiece at Green Lakes, where Wendy and I and sometimes the other Dewsweepers slipped away to chase the game among the gloriously mature evergreens and admire the long view over a dark blue glacial lake, to the very foothills of the Adirondacks themselves, remained just about my favorite Trent Jones golf course of all."

Why do lakes mix?[edit]

Question: Why does mixing occur? This does not make sense to me - The warm water rises and the cold water sinks. Why would mixing occur? - edit from IP 72.228.223.185

Please place questions like this one on the talk page of an article, not into the text itself. It's a good question. I don't think Wikipedia has an article yet that discusses it well, but there are some references at Lake stratification, and lots more references at meromictic. One thought: deep waters in a lake are typically at temperatures around 10 C (50 F) all year round; "ground temperature" doesn't change much with the seasons. In cold climates, the Spring temperatures are lower than that, so the surface waters can sink. This is the usual behavior; meromictic lakes are ones that don't do the usual thing.Easchiff(talk) 11:14, 14 July 2008 (UTC)
