Consequences of lake ice loss on human activities, cultural identity, and values

Over the past 150 years, seasonal ice cover duration on Northern Hemisphere lakes has been decreasing. Ice cover loss may impact ecosystem services, but detailed as well as comprehensive studies evaluating the interplay between ice-covered lakes and society are lacking. This study compiles four case studies to provide quantitative evidence that the loss of lake ice reduces the diverse cultural, recreational, and economic values and uses of lake ice by humans.
