The level of Lake Superior is currently 11 inches lower than it was a year ago and is now less than one inch above the lowest October average level of record (1918-2005) which ocurred in 1925 - and 17 inches below the average October level of record.
Hydrologic effects of climate change:
- More evaporation
- More transpiration from longer growing seasons
- Less inflow to the lakes
