Farting Lakes – MANTEL Pieces Episode 5

Twelve doctoral students from across Europe, including two from IGB, have produced a set of educational videos on lakes for schools during the COVID-19 lockdown: the MANTEL Pieces. The new videos, all in English, are aimed at 12-14 year olds. Building on their research and using only the resources that they had in their houses and apartments during the lockdown, the MANTEL ITN postgraduates made short 5-6 minute videos on lake physics, lake chemistry and lake biology.

Truls Hansson, doctoral student in the Department of Experimental Limnology at IGB, has made a video on how the production of methane from lakes (‘farting’ lakes) might contribute to climate change.
