How does geoengineering affect lakes?

    Geoengineering is affecting lakes just as it has been affecting the world’s oceans. This is mainly through a decrease in the level of oxygen. The underwater ecosystem is dependent on that oxygen to sustain life and grow plants, etc. for consumption by the life underwater. In addition, it could really suffocate underwater life, as a professor at Northwestern University says, “like the mid-Cretaceous ocean, most modern lakes are poor in sulphate, so it’s possible that geoengineering the climate, using sulphate aerosols to reflect sunlight, could trigger blooms and ultimately anoxia in some lakes.”
