If you live in Madison or Wisconsin or the Upper Midwest, you are probably a limnophile (you love lakes). Kicking off the Fall 2021 pledge drive, limnologist / biologist guest Gretchen Gerrish joins host Patrick Sajbel to talk about research at UW’s Trout Lake Station in Boulder Junction.
As the Station approaches a century of research, we look back at the founding and the decade-long Little Rock Lake acid rain project that prompted change to international clean fuel regulations. Ongoing projects study the health of our beloved lake ecosystems. Typical seasonal churning of the lakes is explained as we delve into the exotic realm of exceptional lake dynamics, including the bizarre phenomenon of exploding lakes.
