Project Description

The primary goal of the proposal is to collect and quantify black carbon colloids (BC) in water samples from Lake Tahoe and Fallen Leaf Lake in the wake of the Lake Tahoe basin Angora fire. The sampling program will collect near-shore, mid-lake and outlet river samples from Fallen Leaf Lake and Lake Tahoe. In addition to sampling conducted by the project, we willl leverage pre-existing sampling programs such as the UC-Davis Mid-Lake Tahoe Profile (MLTP), which collects depth profiles from the lake every 30 days.
