Long term weather and lake data from a high elevation lake in the Alps demonstrate that climate warming may actually improve the ability of high-altitude deep lakes to mix their waters.
Though anticipating long days and hard work as a few key crew members do the job of many, researchers heading to the lakes this summer are excited to leave the house.
Researchers devised a system of nine thermal categories for lakes and estimate that 79% of northern frigid lakes could become warmer types.
In the past, Lake Victoria dried out swiftly and often when rainfall was limited. Climate change might bring about those conditions again within a century.
Researchers use remote sensing technology to carry out a global survey of large freshwater lakes.
DDT and its breakdown products permeate lake sediments decades after the pesticide was banned.
A new model improves predictions for sediment movement in vegetated shoreline zones and reveals a universal predictor that could change the understanding of coastal landscape evolution.
Scientists study the impacts of sunlight and wind on evaporation at one of Earth’s most unusual lakes.
The floodwaters have also affected residents downstream along the Saint Lawrence River. Although politicians quickly blamed regulations, scientists say it was a perfect storm of natural factors.
Still-water ecosystems are key to combating explosive algae growth.
