Advanced Research on Lake George
Even on the calmest day, a lot goes on under the surface of Lake George.

Solar-powered sensor platforms moored in the lake are helping scientists understand how much goes on below the surface, measuring the movement of currents, water pH, salinity, and whatever else interests researchers.

On remote command, five high-tech "vertical profilers" can raise and lower various sensors -- more than 50 of them throughout the lake -- through the shallows or the depths. The equipment is part of the Jefferson Project.

The Jefferson Project is a collaboration among Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, IBM, and the Fund for Lake George to gather a massive amount of data, then use enormous data-crunching computer power to better understand the inner workings of the Adirondack lake, and predict what could happen to it in the future.

Shoreline Herbicide Application Results in Significant Native Plant Death - For 18 years, ecologist Robert Johnson has filed reports on Chautauqua Lake in dry, analytical language, logging the number and density of plant species in the shallow lake bed. Lakes are political, Johnson knew, and he didn’t want to squabble with local officials or residents over how they managed the plants.
