The sensors, including two “vertical profilers” like the one pictured above (deployed on just such a windy day last week), will gather data to fuel three complex computer models a weather model, a runoff and circulation model, and ultimately, a food web model that will give scientists an unprecedented understanding of the Lake George watershed and how stressors such as contaminants, invasive species, and development affect its pristine ecosystem.
