In The Lab | Jefferson Project at Lake George
A multidisciplinary environmental research center on the shores of Lake George. At DFWI researchers gather to discuss discoveries and prepare for fieldwork. From DFWI, researchers also launch expeditions to survey the lake, gather samples, and deploy and maintain the network of sensors distributed around the lake. Using data from the Deep Thunder weather model, terrain (topography), and soil characteristics, the runoff model shows how water from precipitation (rain, snowmelt) moves through the 233 square...
On The Lake | Jefferson Project at Lake George
Tributary stations measure many of the same water quality parameters as the vertical profilers as well as the flow and depth of the streams. Such data help researchers to understand the quality of the water flowing into Lake George. They measure:. Deploying a vertical profiler. IBM Research scientists examine sensor technology used in the Jefferson Project. Installing a weather station on Gull Rock. Collecting samples of zooplankton from the lake.
