The 2020 Chautauqua Lake Water Quality Research Panel, sponsored by the Chautauqua Lake and Watershed Management Alliance, was presented on July 18, on the Chautauqua Institution’s Virtual Porch as part of their summer programming. The panel, which was free and open to the public, featured presentations from researchers at the State University of New York at Fredonia, Bowling Green State University, and The Jefferson Project at Lake George. Topics included lake thermal stratification and implications for internal nutrient loading, drone surveillance of harmful algal blooms (HABs), phosphorus and nitrogen loading from the lake and watershed, and the use of integrated science and technology to understand lake dynamics and guide innovative solutions for lake protection and restoration.
The Alliance thanks its distinguished panelists Dr. Courtney Wigdahl-Perry and MaryAnn Mason from the State University of New York at Fredonia; Dr. George Bullerjahn, Dr. Timothy Davis, and Jay DeMarco from Bowling Green State University; and Dr. Rick Relyea, Dr. Harry Kolar, and Eric Siy from The Jefferson Project at Lake George, for presenting on their research. The Alliance also thanks the Chautauqua Institution for hosting the event on their Virtual Porch as part of their summer programming.
