A new scientific research project is bringing together IBM, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Fund for Lake George to assure the ecological and economic future of Lake George and create the “smartest” lake in the world.
Researchers are turning New York's Lake George into the "smartest lake in the world," with a sophisticated monitoring system that will help them predict threats like road salt and invasive species.
The project to track and analyze the waters of the Adirondack Mountain lake from its sun-dappled shores to its dark depths is being launched this week.
Sensors will analyze the likes of stream runoff, rainfall, wind, currents, salinity, chlorophyll and nitrogen, and an IBM supercomputer will crunch the data to provide three-dimensional pictures of the lake.
