For this aim, secchi disk depth, chlorophyll a, total phosphorus and nitrogen values of three stations on the dam lake were measured at monthly between May 2013-April 2014. Uzunçayır Dam lake, secchi depth 1.48-11.04 m, chlorophyll a from 0-34.3 µg L-1, phosphorus from 0.06-1.12 µg L-1 and nitrogen from 0-3.82 µg L-1. It was found that secchi disk was negatively correlated to chlorophyll a. According to TN: TP rate, it was determined that phytoplankton development to be limited by nitrogen. According to the mean value of Carlon`s TSI, the dam lake was oligotrophic. Keywords : Nitrogen,Phosphor,Chlorophyll a,Secchi Disc,Trophic Index,Uzunçayır Dam Lake
