A new study is sounding the alarm on the impact climate change could have on one of the world’s most vulnerable regions.
Michael McGlue, Pioneer Natural Resources Professor of Stratigraphy in the University of Kentucky Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and his team conducted the study at Lake Tanganyika — a major African fishery. The results, which published today in Science Advances, show how certain changes in climate may place the fishery at risk, potentially diminishing food resources for millions of people in this area of eastern Africa.Associated journal article: MM McGlue, et al (2020). “Solar irradiance and ENSO affect food security in Lake Tanganyika, a major African inland fishery.” Science Advances EABB2191. https://doi.org/10.1126/sciadv.abb2191.
