Ecology under lake ice

Principal Investigators:

Stephanie E. Hampton

Traditionally summer has been considered the “growing season” in seasonally ice-covered lakes; however, it is increasingly evident that winter is a time of diverse biological activity and physical processes that affect ecosystem functioning throughout the year. Pioneering research on sea-ice systems has disclosed that under-ice communities can contribute more than half of the total annual primary productivity in some regions, sustaining both pelagic and benthic organisms. Far less is known of dynamics in seasonally ice-covered lakes, but observed... more
