Slide 1

In what manner Might Future Climate Change Affect Lake Temperature, Mixing, Algae, and Small Invertebrates? John T. Lehman University of Michigan 15 June 2001

Slide 2

Climate Change and the Great Lakes What sorts of Ecological Knowledge do we have to comprehend and foresee the impacts of environmental change? What sorts of Ecological Surprises may happen? In what capacity would we be able to acquire a natural protection strategy against impeding impacts and astonishments?

Slide 3

What are the atmosphere compels that are liable to change? Air Temperature Humidity Winds Precipitation Cloud Cover UV Radiation

Slide 4

What physical elements of the lakes are delicate to these powers? Lake surface temperature Evaporation rates Surface streams and blending profundities Duration of warm stratification Ice spread

Slide 5

General Types of Ecological Knowledge Individuals and Single Populations Population Interactions Communities Materials and Energy

Slide 6

Individuals and Single Populations Uniqueness of people (sexual, agamic reproduction) Life history and demography Behavior Genetics and development Sex proportions Dispersion and dissemination

Slide 7

Population Interactions Predator-Prey (and safeguard components) Parasitism Symbiosis: mutualism, commensalism Competition (abuse, impedance) Indirect Effects Fundamental and Realized Niche

Slide 8

Communities Species Composition, Richness, Diversity Indicator Species Trophic Structure Keystone Species Stability and Resilience Invadability Substitutability Ecological Succession

Slide 9

Materials and Energy Primary Production Secondary Production Bioenergetics Biogeochemistry Biological Magnification or Concentration

Slide 10

Managing in the Face of Uncertainty Do we have complete inventories of environmental learning about the species now show in the Great Lakes? By no means! Does the learning we do have license us to make any expectations by any means? Positively.

Slide 11

Projected length of time of warm stratification under Canadian Climate Center atmosphere situation.

Slide 12

Projected most extreme temperature of the blended layer under Hadley Center atmosphere situation.

Slide 13

Projected normal temperature of the blended layer under Canadian Climate Center atmosphere situation.

Slide 14

Projected normal temperature of the lake base at normal lake profundity under Hadley Center atmosphere situation.

Slide 15

Projected least blending profundity under Canadian Climate Center atmosphere situation.

Slide 17

Ecological Effects on the Algae Existing hypothesis about algal nature shows us that blending example is a Master Variable for algal populace development and group piece. Given developed warm stratification and raised temperatures, what are the: impacts on Diatoms? consequences for provincial Greens and Bluegreens?

Slide 18

Ecological Effects on the Algae Existing natural learning focuses to a looming change from quickly developing, sharp, fast sinking species to slower developing, anxiety tolerant, misfortune minimizing species. Quick sinking diatom species are in no time key to the exchange of vitality rich nourishment from the water segment to the dregs, and to the benthic sustenance web.

Slide 20

Ecological Effects on the Algae Most of the Great Lakes are in a matter of seconds optically shallow, as in much light reaches underneath the blended layer and licenses the development of metalimnetic and hypolimnetic algal populaces. Atmosphere calculates alone won\'t change this condition. Be that as it may, if supplement stacking from watersheds and airsheds build, the optical state could change.

Slide 22

Ecological Effects on Lake Invertebrates Metabolism by spineless creatures fluctuates with temperature. Temperature influences Growth rate Egg and fetus advancement Generation time Feeding, breath, and discharge But temperature likewise raises the digestion system and action of most lake predators on the spineless creatures, also.

Slide 23

Ecological Effects on Lake Invertebrates Most of the Great Lakes in no time harbor a gathering of cool stenothermic invertebrate species which can\'t endure warm temperatures. Profound, icy water natural surroundings for these species won\'t vanish. Be that as it may, the oxygen substance of that environment could get to be bargained before the warm\'s end stratification period, especially if supplement stacking were to increment.

Slide 24

Ecological Effects on Lake Invertebrates Increased rummaging and predation by planktivorous fish will bring about changes of invertebrate species toward little bodied structures. The vertical scope of zebra mussels may grow, yet other benthic spineless creatures may experience the ill effects of reduced inputs of great diatoms as sustenance, and from potential reductions in oxygen.

Slide 25

Ecological Surprises Complex communications among numerous species improve the probability of aberrant impacts, some of which will prompt natural amazements. Species attacks New or animated parasites Changes in reproducing windows Altered conveyance designs

Slide 26

Ecological Surprises Further amazes anticipate us with respect to the changes and destinies of natural poisons. A few poisons, for example, Mercury or PCBs, get to be biomagnified up a natural way of life. Their science, transport, and impacts are attached to science.

Slide 27

Ecological Surprises For instance, hoisted UV radiation and lifted temperature could Increase rates at which broke up basic mercury is oxidized to ionic mercury Increase rates of methylation of ionic mercury Increase amassing of methyl mercury in food chains prompting substantial fish

Slide 28

How does the sound Public shield itself from debacle and shock? Science depends on the confirmation of proof as opposed to the enthusiasm of conviction. Perception and hypothesis are the remedys to lack of awareness, trepidation, and uncertainty. Mindful estimations and investigations can give an early cautioning framework to changes inside of the Great Lakes biological system.

Slide 29

How does the balanced Public shield itself from catastrophe and amazement? Provincial evaluation of Great Lakes reaction to ecological changes must turn into a general movement. This evaluation has revealed numerous crevices in natural learning that must be filled. Research and reporting joint efforts among government organizations, scholastic researchers, and intrigued subjects oblige open backing.

Slide 30

Special because of Art Brooks and the Workshop supports. GCM-anticipated atmosphere information for the Great Lakes were supplied by NOAA-GLERL.
