IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: LAKES AND STREAMS


Item #d93dec107

"Projected Global Climate Change Impact on Water Temperatures in Five North Central U.S. Streams," H.G. Stefan (Dept. Civ. & Mineral Eng., Univ. Minnesota, Minneapolis MN 55414), B.A. Sinokrot, Clim. Change, 24(4), 353-381, Aug. 1993.

Model calculations for Minnesota streams predict a warming of freely flowing river reaches by 2.4 to 4.7C resulting from a CO2 doubling. These temperature changes have consequences for survival and growth of fish.


Item #d93dec108

"Regional Water Temperature Characteristics of Lakes Subjected to Climate Change," M. Hondzo (address above), H.G. Stefan, ibid., 24(3), 187-211, July 1993.

A 1-D lake water quality model was validated and linked to GCM output. Predicted changes for a doubled CO2 climate include earlier onset of stratification and later overturn, and greater lake stability in spring and summer.


Item #d93dec109

"Lake Water Quality Modeling for Projected Future Climate Scenarios," H.G. Stefan (address above), M. Hondzo, X. Fang, J. Environ. Qual., 22(3), 417-431, July-Sept. 1993.

Applies a model to wide ranges of lake classes in Minnesota and of meteorological conditions. Differentiates lakes on a regional rather than on an individual basis.
