Einfluß der Donauzubringer auf den Hauptstrom

[The influence of the Danube tributaries on the main river]

Kothé, Peter; Schwenk, Wolfram


The limnological investigation of the Danube tributaries was long neglected as the stream itself was of special interest for limnological research. Only recently have the tributaries, and especially the question of their influence on the main river, received scientific attention. A review of the newest as yet unpublished results of the studies on this question shows that the problems of river pollution, the methodical study of self-purification, hygiene and water protection demand increased limnological research on the tributaries.
