RESEARCH PROJECT,Leman Baikal Project, The Leman Baikal project constitutes an international Swiss Russian collaborative. research initiative in the field of physical limnology using ultralight aircraft The primarily. aim of the project is to conduct a comparative study of the functioning of Lakes Leman. Switzerland and Baikal Southern Siberia region of Russian Federation The scientific. objectives of the project include the analysis of hydrological processes such as the. runoff dynamics of both natural and anthropogenic origin lake energy balance and the. study of processes pertaining to the land water and air water interfaces in lakes. Eleven flights over Lake,Leman took place in April. and May 2013 using a ULM,fitted with RGB infrared,and hyperspectral cameras. Simultaneously scientists,collected in situ data from. a boat for ground truthing,Our initial points of interest.
included the mouths of the,Venoge and Rh ne Rivers. which exhibit a particularly,rich range of visually. observable hydrological,The first collected images look. promising They showed a high,similarity between spectra measured. from the air and in situ from the lake,surface These encouraging results will.
soon allow to assess the,heterogeneity of water quality. parameters and to describe local,mixing phenomena at a higher spatial. and temporal resolution than ever,achieved Scientists are currently. View on Lake Leman from the ULM,processing the large amount of. collected data,2 Limnology Center annual report 2013.
RESEARCH PROJECT,Leman Baikal Project,View Selenga Delta from the ULM. In June and July 2013 Swiss and Russian scientists collaborated on the first acquisition. of remote sensing data using five ULMs Multispectral and hyperspectral observations. were collected above Lake Baikal near the Selenga Delta during thirty two flights. Strong gradients were observed where the turbid and warm river water mixed with. Lake Baikal clear and colder water A scientific team on the water surface. simultaneously took water samples and in situ measurements to compare and. calibrate the remote sensing images The success of this campaign was ensured by the. collaboration of the Russian universities implicated in the project. In 2014 four Russian students will come for an internship to EPFL to process these raw. data and learn how to interpret this amazing information The next campaign on Lake. Baikal is planned for August 2014,We would like to warmly. thank our sponsors,and coordination, Mixing of river and lake waters near Selenga Delta. 3 Limnology Center annual report 2013,HUMAN RESOURCES.

In 2014 the Limnology Center would like to promote the following projects. Research Platform on Lake Leman, The aim of this research platform is to acquire continuous records of physical. properties biogeochemical processes as well as phytoplankton and zooplankton on. Lake Leman This platform should also promote international collaboration with other. research groups interested in this facility and will strongly expand the collaboration. between EPFL UNIGE and INRA Thonon les Bains The equipment will be part of a. Requipe proposal to FNS in May 2014 Given the support from Canton Vaud and. Geneva we have started the administrative procedures. Underwater Automatic Vehicles to investigate ecological niches. This interdisciplinary project is a collaboration with Prof Bas Ibelings from UNIGE and. Prof Alcherio Martinoli from DISAL laboratory at EPFL The goal is to use underwater. automatic vehicles to investigate the spatial heterogeneity of physico biological. processes in lakes The proposal will be submitted on 15 January 2014. Mitigate eutrophication in Lake Prespa, Lake Prespa is an ancient lake shared between Macedonia Greece and Albania Its great. biodiversity is endangered by eutrophication The aim of this project is to determine the. sources of phosphate pollutions by a two years monitoring and to test different. scenarios for pollution reduction using a model of the lake and a catchment model A. proposal was sent to UNDP in October 2013 and we are waiting for the final decision. Limnology under ice in Lake Ladoga, The main goal of this research is to study the development of under ice convection in. Lake Ladoga and its implications for algae development under ice First contacts were. taken with the Petrozavodsk University to start the project after a meeting in. Switzerland early 2014 This project is still under development. data and learn how to interpret this amazing information The next campaign on Lake Baikal is planned for August 2014 We would like to warmly thank our sponsors and coordination View Selenga Delta from the ULM Mixing of river and lake waters near Selenga Delta HUMAN RESOURCES 4 Limnology Center annual report 2013 Deputy Director Dr Natacha Tofield Pasche started her function on 1st
