Short summary
Freshwater lenses are vulnerable to many climate change stressors that act over varying spatial and temporal scales. This study evaluates the spatial and temporal response of a freshwater lens to short- and long-acting climate stressors using a numerical modeling approach. The results identify critical factors affecting the freshwater lens response for a typical small, low-lying island setting, as well as the effectiveness of remedial options in improving lens recovery.
