Maps showing the rate of change of summer surface water temperature in the Great Lakes

Summer surface water temperature increased in most areas of the Great Lakes between 1994 and 2013; the map shows the rate of change. The greatest rates of increase occurred in deeper water, with smaller increases occurring near shorelines.
