This study compares trends in decreasing ice cover and increasing water temperatures in the Laurentian Great Lakes (U.S.) at three spatial scales in order to evaluate the spatial variation in the temperature of this system. Spatial patterns were analyzed using 40 years of ice cover duration data and nearly 25 years of surface water temperature data.
