Rising water temperatures are kicking up more powerful winds on Lake Superior, with consequences for currents, biological cycles, pollution and more on the world's largest lake and its smaller brethren.
The Great lakes have a huge impact in the weather for the cities that are near the lakes. In the fall and early winter months the lakes can create intense snowfall events known as “Lake Effect Snow”. The reason that this occurs has to do with the water temps of the lakes and also the temps of the air that is moving across them. When an Alberta Clipper system forms in Canada and moves Southeastward towards the US, it brings that cold air and strong Northwest winds over the warmer waters....
The snowbelt is a North American region that lies downwind of the Great lakes, where heavy snowfall is common on mostly the eastern and southern shores of the Great Lakes. Lake-effect snow is caused by cold air picking up moisture while crossing the lake and then releasing it as snow when the air cools over land. Throughout much of the winter, lakes produce lake-effect snow and continuously cloudy skies. This phenomenon continues as long as the air temperature is colder than the water...
The Cui-ui, Chasmistes cujus, is a large sucker fish endemic to Pyramid Lake in northwestern Nevada. It feeds primarily on zooplankton and possibly on nanoplankton (such as algae and diatoms). The maximum size of male cui-ui is approximately 21 in (53 cm) and 3.5 lb (1.6 kg) while females reach approximately 25 in (64 cm) and 6 lb (2.7 kg). The life span of Cui-ui is typically about forty years, but the fish do not reach sexual maturity until at least age eight. The Cui-ui is not only a...
