Analyses of new shipboard and ROV observations of bedrock channels carved by floods and outbursts from subglacial lakes under Antarctica shed light on complex subglacial processes.
A new method standardizes freshwater lake measurements and shows they are losing a fifth of their inflow to evaporation.
Road salt is primarily to blame for the shift, though the water remains within safe levels for now.
A multidisciplinary team studying lake sediments and climate change found evidence that the archipelago was inhabited 700 years earlier than historical sources claim.
Arctic warming may release less carbon dioxide from high latitude lakes but increase their climate impact by releasing more methane.
Some types of algal blooms produce dangerous toxins, while others are relatively harmless to humans.
A study of 369 lakes across the Midwest finds that many of them, especially those close to agriculture, have high concentrations of harmful algal bloom-causing cyanobacteria.
Laboratory experiments re-create the thin, icy pedestals that support some rocks in nature, revealing that sublimation plays a key role in the formation of these rare and beautiful structures.
Freshwater lakes on the highest plateau in the world act like lenses that accumulate heat from the intense solar radiation, accelerating ice cover melt and affecting land-atmosphere fluxes.
