Title: Ladoga and Onego - Great European Lakes

Publisher: Springer Okt 2009

Publication Date: 2009

Binding: Buch

Book Condition: Neu

Description:

Neuware - Lakes Ladoga and Onego are the greatest lakes in Europe. With a surface area of 17891 km 2 and a volume of 902 km 3 , the former is one of the top fifteen world's freshwater lakes and is only slightly smaller than Lake Ontario. Lake Onego's surface area is 9600 km 2 and it has a volume of 292 km 3 . The watershed of Lake Ladoga (258000 km 2 ) extends through Northwestern European Russia and the eastern part of Finland, including the large Lakes Ilmen and Saimaa, and together these Great European Lakes are an important link in the Caspian-Baltic-White Sea waterway system. Their ecological state affects the water quality of the Neva River, the Gulf of Finland and the Baltic Sea. Thus any changes affect the operational use, environmental protection and management of water resources of a wide area and concern such issues as drinking, recreation, transport and energy. The anthropogenic impact on the Lake Onego ecosystem is mostly determined by the sewage waters of the Petrozavodsk and Kondopoga industrial centres, while the river inflow makes the most impact on Lake Ladoga. Although the anthropogenic stress on the water ecosystems of the Great European Lakes has decreased over the last 15 years, there has been some simultaneous evidence of global warming. There is not enough current data to identify the climate-induced changes in lake ecosystems, but there is proof that the main cause of lacustrine ecosystem changes is determined by anthropogenic factors. 324 pp. Englisch.
