Climate scientists are always on the search for a way to quantify the impacts of climate change, and while plenty of strategies include specific and intentional monitoring, researchers may also[…]
Stratification phenology has been studied many times in the past due to its ecological significance; however, these studies are typically isolated to an individual or small grouping of lakes. Lake systems are increasingly vulnerable to various climate stressors, making understanding the impacts these stressors have on stratification critical. A 2021 study published in Nature Communications focused on bridging the gaps surrounding stratification phenology and collecting and compiling data from lakes located in the Northern Hemisphere.
A researcher at the University of Michigan seeks to fill the gaps left by missing buoys in the winter by using novel satellite measurements to empower winter wave data gathered in the Great Lakes.
Small-Scale Monitoring for Large-Scale Impacts: Building Storm Resilience in the Newfound Lake Region
Dynamic and healthy ecosystems can become center points for towns, cities, and entire regions—such is the case in the Newfound Lake Region.
