Twelve samples of muds were collected from the bottom of Maggiore lake (northern Italy), at approximately equal intervals throughout the length of the lake in order to index the grain-size distribution and mineral composition of the muds.

The data indicate the presence of a significant amount of mineral matter in suspension throughout the lake as a result of strong currents generated by winds and by thermal variations in the lake waters.
