Parameters: Chlorophyll, Phycocyanin

Myvatn, or “midge lake” in Icelandic, is a biological jewel located just south of the Arctic Circle. As the name suggested, it produces many midges: in years with high densities, the biomass of midges coming out of the lake is about equivalent to 100 humpback whales.
