Lake Flakavatn, 6 km north-northeast of Finse, was visited by the limnologist Kaare M. Strøm in August 1933. He did a geomorphological survey of the watershed, he made a bathygraphical map of the lake, and he recorded some basic limnological observations which are the foundation of our continuing work in this lake. The present project in lake Flakavatn is part of a long-term program covering lakes with similar limnological properties but located under different climatic conditions within Norway - "The Limnology of Ultraoligotrophic Lakes". Students, post-docs and colleagues from various disciplines are taking part in the Flakavatn project - emerging and experienced scientists from all subdusciplines are welcome!
