Kristin Strock

Kristen Strock

Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies (2014)

In collaboration with four colleagues, Professor Kristin Strock published “Key Differences Between Lakes and Reservoirs Modify Climate Signals: A Case for a New Conceptual Model” in 2017. Lakes and reservoirs are climate sentinels, providing insight into the mechanisms and effects of climate change. Due to their similarities, these ecosystems are often considered together in climate models. Strock and her colleagues argue, however, that key differences could cause lakes and reservoirs to respond differently to climate-related inputs and they propose a new model of analysis. Early results predict that catchment and management will be more important in reservoirs than in lakes. Due to increased global reliance on reservoirs, the authors emphasize the need for further research. This research was funded in part by the National Science Foundation and published open access in Limnology and Oceanography Letters.
