Oceanographic: New publicly available water quality database contains information on 12,000 global lakes. “York University (Toronto, Canada) researchers have created a free and publicly available water quality database containing information on close to 12,000 freshwater lakes globally – almost half of the world’s freshwater supply. The hope is that the database will help scientists monitor and manage the health of these lakes. The study includes data for lakes in 72 countries, from Antarctica to the United States and Canada.”
