Global Warming Worsening Due To Low Oxygen Levels in Reservoirs and Lakes

Currently a widespread occurrence of low oxygen concentrations in reservoirs and lakes worldwide has been generating methane that is worsening global warming. Yet while reservoirs and lakes from around the world have been facing a decrease in oxygen concentration in their lowermost layers due to land use, such occurrences are also due to climate change. […]
