If global warming continues, all of the beautiful clear blue lakes are at risk of turning greenish brown which is the color of polluted lakes. This statement was made based on a new study that presents the first global inventory of the lake color.
While things like algae and sediments can cause the lakes to change color, the new study shows that air temperature, precipitation, lake depth, and evaluation can also play an important role in determining the lake’s watercolor.
Blue lakes, which represent short of 33% of the world’s lakes, will generally be more profound and are found in fantastic, high-scope locales with high precipitation and winter ice cover. The review finds that green-earthy colored lakes, which are 69% of all lakes, are broader and are tracked down in drier locales, mainland insides, and along shores.
If you want our future generations to enjoy all of the nice lakes, beaches, etc, we need to take action now and stop air pollution! Let’s all be responsible and save our Earth for our future generations to come!
