Lake Ice—and Ecosystems—in a Warming World

"Ice cover on freshwater lakes, even when only seasonally present, can strongly influence warming summer lake temperatures, algal growth, and nutrient availability. As effects of ice cover on inland aquatic ecosystems have become clearer, research into the biogeochemical and ecological processes that occur during winter has blossomed. But because of challenges inherent in winter fieldwork, these studies have not kept pace with the ecological changes associated with continuing decreases in seasonal ice duration."

Why scientists intentionally spilled oil into a Canadian lake

"In 2018, we conducted a larger study using in-lake enclosures at the IISD-Experimental Lakes Area, a research facility in northwestern Ontario that’s world-renowned for hosting experiments in whole lakes. Research from these experimental lakes has shaped water quality policies, such as acid rain and phosphates, by providing more accurate answers than those that come from a lab test tube."
