Description

This climate webinar provides information about biogeochemistry, carbon cycling and invasive species in Lakes Superior and Michigan and prospects for acidification of the Great Lakes due to CO2 uptake from the atmosphere.

Abstract

The ecosystems of the Great Lakes are critical national resources, yet their large-scale functioning and interactions with climate change are poorly explained. How do physical drivers impact chemistry and ecology? How are invasive species reacting to physical change? How will the Great Lakes respond to increasing atmospheric CO2? Numerical models and data help us to answer these questions, and to identify future research priorities. This webinar will provide information about biogeochemistry, carbon cycling and invasive species in Lakes Superior and Michigan; impacts of physical change on carbon cycling and invasive species; and prospects for acidification of the Great Lakes due to CO2 uptake from the atmosphere
