Rivers and Lakes

Rivers and Lakes are critical environments for the habitability of our planet. These freshwater systems provide both the human and natural environment with clean water and have crucial roles to play in the cycling of important elements, including carbon. Climate change is impacting many physical and biogeochemical processes, but to understand how we must integrate many diverse approaches. Therefore, In this Collection, we showcase publications which study freshwater environments from many different angles, using observation and analysis of the present and past to try to understand an uncertain future.
