‘Monster Buoy’ Removed

From Lake For Winter

Dr. Kiyoko Yokota was on hand at the Biological Field Station dock on Otsego Lake yesterday for the removal of what Paul Lord, standing at left, who leads the BFS diving team, termed a “monster buoy.”  The Continuous Lake Monitoring Buoy (CLMB) just completed its second year tracking conditions deep in the lake, which can be compared with CLMBs around the national and world, to allow the local researchers to prepare for changing conditions caused by global warming.  Dr. Yokota, an assistant professor of biology at SUNY Oneonta and BFS researcher, said the CLMB noted numerous more days above 26 degrees Celsius this summer than the year before.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
