Floating research station to explore Lake Geneva

LéXPLORE is a research station inaugurated in 2019 designed to take physical, chemical and biological measurements at high-resolution, in order to reveal hourly, seasonal and long-term changes in Lake Geneva. The project team also wants to work with the lake users: professional fishermen, boating and ferry trade, environmental protection and public authorities. The platform is intended to be accessible to all interested researchers. In addition, all members of the public will have real-time access to the online data, including meteorological conditions and lake temperature. LéXPLORE is a joint project between Eawag and EPFL, through the Limnology Center, the Universities of Geneva and Lausanne, and the Alpine Center for research on trophic networks and liminic ecosystems (CARRTEL) in Thonon-les-Bains.
