Oct 6, 2022

The accelerated melting of glaciers currently brings large quantities of water to Lake Geneva in summer. What will happen in 2100, when most of the Alpine glaciers may have disappeared and the precipitation regime is expected to have changed significantly? What will be the consequences of these changes on the water supply of Lake Geneva? Can they really be predicted and on what time scale? These changes in water supply and the rise in atmospheric temperatures have direct and indirect influences on the temperature and properties of the waters of Lake Geneva at different depths. What will be the consequences on the quality of the lake water and potentially on its biodiversity?
