If present trends continue, most climatologists agree that the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will have doubled by 2050. This increase in CO2 will have a major effect on the global climate and substantially alter the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of lakes throughout the world. A number of recent studies have considered the impact of climate change on water resources, but most have a national focus and are primarily concerned with changes in water quantity rather than quality. In recent years a number of workers have demonstrated that year-to-year changes in the weather have a profound impact on the seasonal dynamics of lakes. This book highlights some of the mechanisms involved and assesses the likely qualitative impact of recent changes in the weather.
Audience: Researchers, teachers, water managers.

Editorial Reviews

Climatologists alert us to the likelihood that if present trends continue, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will double in about 50 years with adverse effects on the seasonal dynamics of lakes globally. The NATO workshop held in November 1995 in Prague assembled limnologists from European countries to plan integrated studies on the impact of regional as well as local weather changes. A sampling of the 23 titles includes: Linkages between atmospheric weather and the dynamics of limnetic phytoplankton, Managing reservoir water quality in the Vltava River Board area, Fluctuations in lake fisheries and global warming, Modeling the responses of lakes to day-to-day changes in weather, and International networks of lake sites.
