Global Phytoplankton Increase

Figure from publication on global algal blooms

Detailed Description

Figure 2 from "Widespread global increase in intense lake phytoplankton blooms since the 1980s," published in the Journal Nature in October of 2019: Time series for lakes with at least 14 years of data (n = 49) categorized by historical pathway. Grey lines show 5-year moving averages of normalized bloom intensity, with coloured lines showing pathway averages across lakes. The time series of the bloom intensity z-score for each lake is calculated using its own historical mean and s.d. e, Global distribution of lake pathways. The base map was generated using Generic Mapping Tools33.
