To answer our research questions thoroughly, we are working at several different levels of detail. First, we are studying two specific lakes in depth, along with the watersheds around them:
- Lake Mendota, Wisconsin
- Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire
Collaborators on our project also bring insight into our research questions from their work on:
- Oneida Lake, New York
- Lake Lillinonah, Connecticut
- Acton Lake, Ohio
In addition, we investigate how our findings from these lakes could apply to a broad set of lakes spanning the Upper Midwest, North Central, and Northeastern United States using the extensive LAGOS database.
Our research is also tightly connected with the Global Lakes Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON), an international network of limnologists, ecologists, computer scientists, and information technologists.
