New paper alert on the timing and rates of chlorophyll-a in global temperate & cold-temperate lakes

A new paper published in Earth System Science Data, researchers from ReSEC and Ecohydrology Research Group at the University of Waterloo assembled a dataset on chlorophyll-a concentrations plus associated water quality parameters and surface solar radiation for temperate and cold-temperate lakes experiencing seasonal ice cover. A new method was developed to identify periods of rapid net increase of in situ chlorophyll-a concentrations from time series data. It was then applied to data collected between 1964 and 2019 across 343 lakes located north of 40∘ N. The paper can be accessed at LINK.
