Lakes are considered sentinels of change,as they quickly react to alterations in atmospheric, terrestrial, and aquatic processes. Northern lakes are becoming brown as a result of the rapid changes that ecosystems in these latitudes are experiencing.
My research explores how climatic and hydrologic changes are altering the linkages between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. These alterations are the drivers of lake browning, and have cascading effects in lake ecosystems and human health.
The figures below are extracted from publications and/or presentations I have given in conferences and workshops (labels hidden when data is not public).
