IISD Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA) brings a 47 year (1969–present) history of monitoring climate, water quality and fisheries in a unique whole-ecosystem laboratory setting.

Now, as a part of IISD, it has the opportunity to use its long-term monitoring dataset to examine how climate change is affecting boreal forests, wetlands and lakes from a consistent, long-term, whole-ecosystem dataset of significant scientific and societal value.

This brochure presents some of IISD-ELA's major climate change research findings, so you can see the data for yourself and understand how climate change is affecting our lakes.
