Lake temperature trends across northeastern North America – a new paper

I, along with co-lead authors Stephanie Melles (Ryerson University)Rachel Pilla (University of Miami Ohio) and co-authors, have published a new paper titled “Transparency, Geomorphology and Mixing Regime Explain Variability in Trends in Lake Temperature and Stratification across Northeastern North America (1975–2014).” This paper can be found here in the journal ‘Water’.

Lake water across the northeastern North America are warming because of climate change. Lake surfaces are, in fact, warming faster than the air above it likely because of milder winters and less ice cover, and other changes in the region. Deepwater temperatures are not all warming – the spatial distribution of the lakes across our region is important to understanding deepwater trends.
