Global carbon budget of reservoirs is overturned by the quantification of drawdown areas

Keller, P.S., Marcé, R., Obrador, B., Koschorreck, M.

Keller et al

By analysing a dataset containg the water surface area of thousands of reservoirs we could show that globally 15% of reservoir surfaces have not been covered by water. This has consequences for the global carbon ballance of reservoirs: They emitt more carbon as greenhouse gases as they burry in their sediment.

Lake heatwaves under climate change

Woolway, R.I., Jennings, E., Shatwell, T., Golub, M., Pierson, D.C., Maberly, S.C.

Figure Shatwell

Periods of exceptionally high surface water temperature in lakes, known as lake heatwaves, will increase in intensity and duration by the end of the 21st century, according to a study in the journal Nature by an international team of scientists. This may threaten biodiversity and push lake ecosystems to their limits. About 40% of lakes may experience a permanent (year-round) heatwave state under strong warming in the coming decades.

Interaction of cyanobacteria with calcium facilitates the sedimentation of microplastics in a eutrophic reservoir

plastic biofilm

During Summer 2019 we elucidated the role of microbial biofilm formation on the sedimentation of microplastics in the eutrophic Bautzen reservoir. We could show that buoyancy loss of microplastics was facilitated by calcium carbonate formation within attached biofilms.
