Project Description

This project is designed to build off of previous research testing the feasibility of using buoys to measure near-shore water quality conditions at Lake Tahoe. It will include: 1) a continuous one-year long buoy deployment to assess seasonal operations, 2) to test a new anti-biofouling design for the light transmissivity and chlorophyll fluorescence sensors and, 3) the addition of a temperature string and multi-level sampling to assess depth-dependent changes in temperature, transmissivity, and relative chlorophyll.
