Lakes and Climate Change

LEA Researcher Amanda Pratt gave a presentation on lakes and climate change at the Maine Lake Science Center in June 2017. The presentation went through basic climate science, basic lake science, climate change predictions for the Lakes Region, and the changes we’re already seeing and expect to see in the future as they pertain to our lakes. She also talked a little about what it will take for us to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
