York Circle Lecture – Sapna Sharma
Will northern fish populations be in hot water because of climate change?
In this presentation, Sharma will discuss the effects of climate change on lakes around the world. Using lake ice records collected at a monastery in Japan since 1442 by Shinto priests, Sharma will demonstrate how the climate has changed over the past 550 years. Additionally, she will examine how, in the last 25 years, lake water temperatures have changed in response to alterations in air temperatures and solar brightening. By better understanding the past, we can forecast how climate change is expected to influence Canadian sport fish populations over the next 50 years.
