HUB TELEGRAM: A new study reveals how the world’s lakes are already warming at unprecedented rates due to climate change that can greatly affect freshwater supplies for surrounding ecosystems and communities.
This shift in temperatures can highly affect lake ecosystems making temperature a very crucial factor in the overall state of water and its properties, affecting the health of animals and organisms dwelling in the lake.
In this new study, researchers used satellite temperature data from surveys and ground information. Between 1985 and 2009, about 235 lakes around the world were analyzed as well. This is also the considered the largest study of this kind, where all the lakes involved in this study provide more than 50 percent of the planet’s freshwater resources.
New findings reveal how these lakes are already warming by an average of 0.61 degrees Fahrenheit every 10 years. This warming rate is also considered…
