An article detailing further developments in the bathymetric survey work as detailed in the 6th annual report of the Freshwater Biological Association. Work has concentrated on investigating the layering in lake deposits (with the use of special equipment and corers), extending the area of lake for bathymetric surveys and the analysis of diatoms and plant material from core samples. A number of waterbodies in the Lake District are investigated, including: Bassenthwaite Lake, Derwentwater, Ennerdale Water, Rydal Water, Coniston Water, Buttermere Lake, Grasmere Lake, Esthwaite Water, Loweswater Lake, Haweswater Reservoir, Crummock Water, Ullswater Lake, Thirlmere Reservoir, Wastwater and Lake Windermere.
