New GLEON Project: Recent changes in ice dynamics across the globe

Sapna Sharma, Gesa Weshenmeyer, John Lenters, John Magnuson, Rudstam and others in GLEON.

This project is an update of the Magnuson et al. 2000 Science paper using data through 2019, including Oneida Lake and Cazenovia Lake.  Overall, the ice data shows faster declines in the number of ice days in the 2000s, supporting the accelerating warming of the planet.  Not all lakes are equal and part of this analysis is to compare trends across the globe.
