Research Brief: Impacts of the Salinization of Small Urban Ponds
Lake Scientist
by Samantha Baxter
1d ago
Stormwater retention ponds and other small, shallow water resources are often forgotten in limnological research. For many years, scientists believed that shallower water did not stratify on a density gradient to a meaningful degree. However, due to the influx of runoff, road salt, and other pollutants, stormwater retention ponds and other shallow waters located near urban centers are disrupted and impaired. In particular, understanding small urban ponds is important to protecting various ecosystem services and urban biodiversity. Salinization, reduced water clarity, warming and eutrophication ..read more

Research Brief: Implications of Updated Phosphorous Loads from Lake Huron and the Detroit River
Lake Scientist
by Samantha Baxter
5M ago
Research centering on phosphorous loading in Lake Erie has grown in frequency as nutrient loading in the lake and its surrounding tributaries becomes inextricably tied to environmental stressors. Nutrient pollution is tied to declines in dissolved oxygen, hypoxia, harmful algal blooms, and other conditions that influence system health. For Lake Erie, the influence of Lake Huron, the Detroit River, and other tributaries all shape loading conditions in the basin. Knowing that high nutrient loads lead to these events, the binational Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement recently revised Lake Erie’s ..read more

Research Brief: Research Need in the Lake Victoria Basin
Lake Scientist
by Samantha Baxter

Like the over lakes in Africa’s Great Lakes region, millions of people rely on Lake Victoria for a variety of land use and ecosystem services, though data shows that the basin is in danger. Facing biodiversity loss, climate change and various anthropogenic stressors. While the lake plays a significant role in the region, there are significant knowledge gaps surrounding its use and understanding of existing lake dynamics. A 2023 study published in the Journal of Great Lakes Research “presents existing research gaps, existing capacity, and presents a way forward for priority research ..read more

Research Brief: 20-Year Phytoplankton Biomass Trends in Lake Erie
Lake Scientist
by Samantha Baxter
5M ago
Climate change-induced changes to the Great Lakes regions have led to resurgent eutrophication in Lake Erie’s western basin. This eutrophication is characterized by the ever-familiar algal blooms that dominate the region. Despite consistent monitoring efforts, there is limited research on the effects of eutrophication and of the blooms themselves on the rest of the phytoplankton community. Over time, blooms have increased in frequency and severity, likely as a result of agricultural runoff, which is exacerbated by climate change-driven increases in precipitation and intensive agriculture pract ..read more
