On 28 May, we deployed a meteorological buoy near the Duluth Water Intake, in approximately 52m of water. This is part of a larger array of instrumentation that we will be deploying around Lake Superior this summer. The focus of our research is developing a better understanding of the thermal structure of Lake Superior, how it varies across the lake, and how it varies from year to year. We are especially interested in the role that ice plays in the year-to-year development of the lake.

Below are a few of the measurements we are making. You can click on some of the panels to get more information.
