Data from the Floating Classroom

  • We have compiled 8 years of water temperature profiles, clarity data and plankton surveys and are working on a format that will be suitable for public use.  Presently, all raw data is available in excel file format upon request. 
  • This slideshow illustrates the warming and cooling of our lake from spring to fall with a series of deep-water profiles created by students during Floating Classroom cruises.  For orientation, think of the top of the chart as the surface of the lake.

2012 Lake Profiles

  • The following image is a draft presentation of "heat budgets" prepared for Cayuga Lake, based on four years of student data.  We hope to launch an exploration of climate change and its impact on local systems soon!
