Warm on top, cold below: Uexpected greenhouse gas effect in lakes

A research team led by the University of Basel and the Université de Montréal examined how the ongoing climate warming affects the “behavior” of lakes. The researchers found out why, in near-bottom waters, lakes may even cool down despite warming at the surface, and what the consequences are for the production and emission of greenhouse gases. The results of the study were published in the most recent edition of the journal Limnology and Oceanography Letters.
