IISD Experimental Lakes Area
IISD Experimental Lakes Area is one of the world’s most influential freshwater research facilities. It features a collection of 58 small lakes and their watersheds in Northwestern Ontario, Canada, as well as a facility with accommodations and laboratories for up to 60 personnel.
By manipulating these small lakes, scientists are able to examine how all aspects of the ecosystem—from the atmosphere to fish populations—respond. In April 2014, IISD, the Government of Ontario and the Government of Canada signed three agreements to ensure the facility's long-term operation.
