Iestyn Woolway: The global response of lakes to climate change

Iestyn Woolway. Iesytn's Fellowship investigated the global responses of lakes to climate change. This includes aspects such as climate-induced variations in lake surface temperature, the occurrence of thermal extremes, changing stratification patterns, lake ice dynamics, and water level/extent. Most notably, using a combination of modelled (e.g., from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project) and satellite data (e.g., from ESA CCI Lakes) my research aims to answer key questions that relate to climate-related changes in lakes worldwide, and to understand the implications of these changes to the ecosystem services that lakes provide. Current Publications resulting from this fellowship include:
