Lakes could lose their winter ice within the next decade

Jan 29, 2019 15:37 IST

A study published in the journal Nature Climate Change reveals that the next decade could witness a loss of the world's lake ice. The study, which involved observing 513 lakes around the Northern Hemisphere, also indicates that the loss of ice cover could impact millions of people and fish species inhabiting the lakes. Scientists view lake ice as an important indicator of climate change. A wide range of ecosystem services from recreation to transportation depend on lake ice, that would be majorly affected by the depleting ice cover.
