Abstract: The small strongly stratified hard-water hypertrophic lake Verevi (max. depth 11.0 m, surface area 12.6 ha, mean depth 3.6 m) was investigated in 2000 and in 2001.The sedimentation rate of particulate matter was 0.4-6.3 g m-2 d-1 dry weight in different layers of the water column. Daily average sedimentation loss rate was 27% of the total amount of seston of the epilimnion, whilst from the meta- and hypolimnion the settling was much slower (9.6 and 7.3%, respectively).
