Latest Lake Stories
A team of geoscientists from Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) using newly available remote-sensing technology has achieved unprecedented detail in quantifying subtle, long-period changes in the water levels of shallow lakes and ponds in hard-to-reach Arctic wetlands.
A model developed by mission leaders at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory suggests the supply of methane lakes will soon come to end.
Instead of being an isolated occurrence, a record-breaking 2011 algae bloom in Lake Erie could be a harbinger of things to come, researchers report in this week's online early edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).
A seminar led by Kris Lindahl and held in Prior Lake, MN on Thursday afternoon focused on how buyers can be confident in the down payment assistance process. Prior
Samples taken from an underground lake in Antarctica last January contain a new life form previously unknown to science, according to researchers who are in charge of studying the returned samples.
NASA is best known for its explorations away from this planet, but the US space agency has a whole other program aimed at investigating the depths of this planet.
Lake Savers 2012 Scientific Data Proves Effectiveness of All-Natural Technology in Lake Restoration Kalamazoo, Michigan (PRWEB) February 28, 2013 Studies
A pair of Utah researchers has found the topography around a lake can greatly influence the amount and range of a lake-effect snow event, according to a new study in the new journal Monthly Weather Review.
Rivers, lakes, and oceans may play a large role in the water cycle, but many people don’t realize that one of the biggest factors in keeping water clean lies just below their feet.
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...
