Lakes -- Summary

December 2009
CO2 Science;12/23/2009, Vol. 12 Issue 50, p8
The article examines the impact of global warming on the earth's lakes through a review of historical and proxy records of lake temperatures, lake water levels, and lake and stream water chemistry. A 2002 analysis of studies using palaeolimnological techniques to reconstruct two-century temperature histories of seven remote mountain lakes in Europe revealed either general cooling or no trend in temperature during the 19th century. It was indicated that concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide did not cause warming trends.
