Biology Professor Sapna Sharma receives Early Researcher Award
Biology Professor Sapna Sharma, along with three other professors at York University, has received $140,000 in funds through the Ontario government’s Early Researcher Awards program.
Sharma is studying how climate change may influence the duration of ice cover on inland and Great Lakes; whether reduced ice cover leads to warmer lakes; and which lakes are at highest risk of poor water quality under climate change. Lakes are sensitive indicators of climate change. They are experiencing higher water temperatures and reduced periods of ice cover. However, the implications of reduced ice cover and higher water temperatures for water quality remain unclear. She will analyze long-term ecological datasets from Ontario lakes and relate them to lakes across the Northern Hemisphere.
