Lake study to begin at Lake George

Posted: Updated:
LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. -

Researchers are taking to the waters of Lake George this week in an attempt to create a sophisticated environmental monitoring and prediction center.

During the three-year project, scientists will combine aerial and boat-based surveying techniques to create a high-resolution map of the lakebed.

The goal is to get an accurate computer model that simulates water circulation within the 32-mile lake and surrounding areas.

Researchers hope a better understanding of the lake will help them combat threats like invasive species.
