Ganguly, A. R., K. Steinhaeuser, D. J. Erickson III, M. Branstetter, E. S. Parish, N. Singh, J. B. Drake, L. Buja, Higher trends but larger uncertainty and geographic variability in 21st century temperature and heat waves, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States, 10.1073/pnas.0904495106, 2009. What will the impacts be on water resources and terrestrial ecosystems? How do we begin to address such daunting

challenges of environmental change? Where in the complex landscape should we sample for the best information? Lakes! Lowest point in the landscape Respond to environmental change, and leave signals in the sediments You Need EARS! Environmental Aquatic Resource Sensing

You Need GLEON! Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network Advanced sensors to network lakes across continents to look at lake sentinels. Lakes as Sentinels and Integrators of Environmental Change What is a lake sentinel? Any physical, chemical, or biological characteristic of a lake that responds to environmental forcing in an informative and quantifiable way. What is a paleoecological lake integrator? Historical sentinels in the sediments that provide information relevant to climate change over longer time periods

Lakes are not Isolated Ecosystems Photosynthesis by phytoplankton, benthic algae, macrophytes Endogenous C drives lakes towards autotrophy = Autochthonous carbon Integral part of watershed Receive runoff, streamflow, groundwater Inputs of fixed C = POM, DOM (measured as DOC) Exogenous C drives lakes towards heterotrophy = Allochthonous carbon Area Receiving Incident Sunlight

DOC Sources to Lakes Roulet & Moore 2006 Nature 444:283 Leaching of dissolved organic matter from terrestrial sources feeds fixed C to aquatic ecosystems Allochthonous Sources of Fixed Carbon Vary with plant species
