Abstract--Lac Pavin is a volcanic crater lake in the Massif Central (France), characterized by a permanent
vertical density stratification resulting from a strong and persistent chemocline between about 60 and 70 m
depth. The deep water below the chemocline forms the monimolimnion, in which most dissolved ions as well
as helium, carbon dioxide, and methane are strongly enriched. The 3
