Since the passage of the Clean Air Act in 1970, Ohio has made significant strides in achieving good air quality. Part of the cleaner air the state now enjoys comes from shifts in manufacturing practices and the choices people have made to drive more fuel-efficient cars. But all of the achievements are owed in part to air monitoring efforts that have allowed environmental officials to track progress.
As part of its air quality maintenance work, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency works with district offices, contract agencies and health departments around the state to oversee monitoring stations that keep track of six key pollutants: carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, particulate matter and sulfur dioxide.Read More
In 2012, for maybe the first time, Lake Superior got scummy.
Visitors to the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore reported algae washing up on shore around the park.
It was a marked shift for the park, made up of a portion of the Lake Superior lakeshore and nearby islands. The water surrounding the park is cold, clear and typically low in nutrients: a combination unlikely to result in algal blooms.
But, in 2012 and again in 2018 after violent storms, major algal blooms—ones observed over multiple days—washed ashore and clogged the beaches with unsightly, scummy algae.
Not the usual suspects
The algal blooms of Lake Superior are not the algal blooms of warmer, more nutrient-rich lakes like Lake Erie.Read More
*This is part two of a series on changing ancient lakes. See part one, Lake Baikal, here .
Ancient lakes are facing a suite of rapid, unprecedented anthropogenic changes. While ancient lakes are spread around the world and vary widely from lake to lake, their incredible age, which can reach into the tens of millions of years, makes them unique resources to science.
They host incredible biodiversity and long sediment records. They are vital sources of food and water for millions of people. In a changing world, ancient lakes’ value as scientific and natural resources and the incredibly diverse life they contain is under threat.Read More
