Hence, due to regional particularities, including climatic, hydrological and environmental factors, the correlation degree between limnological variables have been assessed on the adequacies of the original Carlson's Trophic State Index (1977), aiming to reduce the TSI amplitude results obtained from each variable.
Carlson's trophic state index (TSI) is a common method for characterizing a lake's trophic state or overall health.
Aizaki [38] introduced chlorophyll-a as a reference parameter and applied his modified Carlson's trophic state index ([TSI.sub.M]) to Japanese lakes of different depths.
In the present study, modified Carlson's trophic state index ([TSI.sub.M]) and comprehensive trophic state index ([TSI.sub.C]) were applied to ascertain the trophic classification of the studied lake, and the results showed that the values of [TSI.sub.M] and [TSI.sub.C] ranged from 53.72 to 70.61 and from 47.73 to 53.67, respectively.
Carlson's trophic state index (TSI) was calculated for variables chlorophyll-a (TSIChl), total phosphorus (TSIP) and Secchi disk (TSISD), according to Carlson (1977).
