DNA can be preserved in marine and freshwater sediments both in bulk sediment and in intact, viable resting stages. Here, we assess the potential for combined use of ancient, environmental, DNA and timeseries of resurrected long-term dormant organisms, to reconstruct trophic interactions and evolutionary adaptation to changing environments. These n...

• Nutrient availability and climate have substantial effects on the structure and function of lakes. Predicted changes to climate (particularly temperature) over the 21st century are expected to adjust physical lake functions, changing thermal and nutrient use processes. Both increasing anthropogenic nutrient inputs and net reductions following rem...

In west Greenland, an approximate chronosequence of landscape evolution and weathering exists between the coast, which has been ice free for long periods, and more recently deglaciated areas along the present day ice margin. Traditional geochemical and isotopic analyses (δ¹⁸O, δ²H, ³H, δ³⁴S/δ¹⁸O (SO4), and ⁸⁷Sr/⁸⁶Sr) along with novel isotopic tools...
Article
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) concentration and quality were examined from Arctic lakes located in three clusters across south-west (SW) Greenland, covering the regional climatic gradient: cool, wet coastal zone; dry inland interior; and cool, dry ice-marginal areas. We hypothesized that differences in mean annual precipitation (m.a.p.) between si...

In the last century, lakes in China have been subject to forcing by climate change, intensification of agriculture, and urban expansion, though their effects on lake OC sequestration are poorly understood. We compiled dry mass and OC burial rates from 82 210Pb-dated lake sediment records in China. The average post-1950 focusing-corrected lake mass...

... Such studies in the future could be greatly reinforced by the extraction of DNA from resting eggs [23,206,207]. We expect that eDNA from bottom sediments [208,209] will be also applied in such studies in the future, but such technologies are only recently being fine-tuned (and a proper taxonomically curated database of comparative sequences is vital). ...
... Sediment's nutrients or internal nutrient load act as nutrient source and sink then release nutrients into the water column (Hu et al., 2019;Lee et al., 2019). Similarly, external nutrient loading from stormwater runoff significantly impacted nutrients in the lake's ecosystem (Radbourne et al., 2019a;Steinman et al., 2015). Moreover, the phosphorus and nitrogen limitation in the lake depends on the lake's catchment area, which poses a challenge to manage eutrophication (Lewis et al., 2020). ...
... Kangerlussuaq, Greenland: The Kangerlussuaq fjord (Danish: Søndre Strømfjord) is a marine environment flanked by highly reworked Archean gneisses inhabited by various species of vascular plants and lichens encompassing its modern catchment (Henkemans et al., 2018). The present-day depth varies between a few meters by the Kangerlussuaq airport (SFJ) near uplifted sediments where concretions have been collected to over 300 meters where the mouth of the fjord meets the Davis Strait. ...
... Lake sediments, for example, store an estimated 3.3 Pg C (reF. 61 ), with 0.33 Tg C buried in lakes annually 62 . The total carbon loss of river burial and output to ocean is estimated as 5.71 Tg C yr −1 (based on a ratio of 65% by such losses about totally exported carbon to the Yellow River system 63 ). ...
... The extremely high proportion (95%) comes from non-glacierized basins (Cory et al. 2014), while in the rest of the pan-Arctic region a more moderate proportion (< 50%) is usually reported (Köhler et al. 2002;Mann et al. 2012;Osburn et al. 2009;Stubbins et al. 2017). For the glacial basins, like Greenland, glacier meltwater DOM in the basin is already under strong photo-degradation impact due to wide presence of lakes, where the suspended particles settle down and the water residence time extends (Osburn et al. 2017). As a result, DOC from glacial basins showed very limited photo-degradation (< 30%; Fowler et al. 2018;Nicholes 2020). ...
