The attenuation of solar UV radiation in lakes and the role of dissolved organic carbon
Diffuse attenuation coefficients (&) for solar UV radiation (UVR) (305, 320, 340, 380 nm, and PAR) were measured in the mixed layer of 65 lake sites in Alaska, Colorado, and Pennsylvania and theExpand

Rapid and highly variable warming of lake surface waters around the globe
In this first worldwide synthesis of in situ and satellite-derived lake data, we find that lake summer surface water temperatures rose rapidly (global mean = 0.34°C decade−1) between 1985 and 2009.Expand

Ultraviolet radiation in North American lakes: Attenuation estimates from DOC measurements and implications for plankton communities
Climate warming in North America is likely to be accompanied by changes in other environmental stresses such as UV-B radiation. We apply an empirical model to available DOC (dissolved organic C) dataExpand

Lake metabolism and the diel oxygen technique: State of the science
Significant improvements have been made in estimating gross primary production (GPP), ecosystem respiration (R), and net ecosystem production (NEP) from diel, “free-water” changes in dissolved oxygenExpand

Dissolved organic carbon and nutrients as regulators of lake ecosystems: Resurrection of a more integrated paradigm
The primary interpretive paradigm used to study lakes is their trophic status. Oligotrophic lakes have low nutrient loading and low productivity, while eutrophic lakes have high nutrients and highExpand

Solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) may have beneficial as well as detrimental effects on living systems. For example, UV-B radiation (280-320 nm) is generally dam- aging, while UV-A radiation (320-400Expand

Effects of UV radiation on aquatic ecosystems and interactions with climate change.
The health of freshwater and marine ecosystems is critical to life on Earth. The impact of solar UV-B radiation is one potential stress factor that can have a negative impact on the health of certainExpand

Toward a more comprehensive theory of zooplankton diel vertical migration: Integrating ultraviolet radiation and water transparency into the biotic paradigm
The current prevailing theory of diel vertical migration (DVM) of zooplankton is focused largely on two biotic drivers: food and predation. Yet recent evidence suggests that abiotic drivers such asExpand

Lakes and reservoirs as sentinels, integrators, and regulators of climate change
Climate change is generating complex responses in both natural and human ecosystems that vary in their geographic distribution, magnitude, and timing across the global landscape. One of the majorExpand

Utilization of subsurface food resources for zooplankton reproduction: Implications for diel vertical migration theory
The water columns of lakes and oceans provide a diverse habitat gradient in which light, temperature, food, and predation risk all change with depth. Many planktonic organisms exhibit diel verticalExpand
