Potential impacts of climatic changes on water quality in lakes

F. Szilagyi, L. Somlyody

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Human activities have caused the CO2 concentration to increase steadily in the atmosphere of the globe, the resulting "greenhouse' effect influencing potentially the future climate on global and regional scales alike. Advances have been registered in research into the meteorological and hydrological impacts of the greenhouse effect, whereas studies on water quality have barely started. Water quality can be influenced on many different ways. The potential impact on the chemical composition of hard water has been demonstrated on the basis of classical equilibrium equations, by assuming a twofold increase in the CO2 level. -from Authors
