Possible effects of global climate change on the ecosystem of Lake Tanganyika
Any change in the air temperature, wind speed, precipitation, and incoming solar radiation induced by increasing greenhouse gasses and climate change will directly influence lakes and other water bodies. The effects of a slight increase in lake water temperature on the Lake Tanganyika ecosystem might be mitigated by increased windiness, if the latter was sufficient to induce greater mixing.
The physics of the warming of Lake Tanganyika by climate change
Climate warming over the 20th century has increased the density stratification and stability of Lake Tanganyika, a deep rift valley lake. While lakes in general will increase heat outputs in a warming climate, heat outputs will increase more slowly in deeper lakes than in shallower lakes.
