Megan Lane in lake measuring elevation for LOCSS project

With support from NASA, Tamlin Pavelsky, associate professor of global hydrology in the Department of Geology, is teaming up with the Center for Public Engagement with Science to gain a more accurate picture of water storage in lakes around the globe. We are enlisting citizen scientists to collect lake height measurements all over the world. These measurements, paired with satellite imagery of lake area, are helping us learn how water storage varies regionally.
