Physical Limnology

Physical limnology forms the basis for understanding many interactions within lakes. We’ve been studying the fundamentals for 50 years and counting.

Metadata

Zooplankton

As a virtually unseen aspect of the food web, zooplankton play an important role in nutrient cycling within lakes.

Metadata

Hydrology

Hydrology is the study of water movement and distribution. We’ve been recording water levels and stream flows for over 40 years.

Metadata

Meteorology

We have an unparalleled meteorological dataset of the local area that we have been collecting for over 50 years.

Fish Program

The IISD-ELA fish program is responsible for monitoring the health and behaviour of the many fish species found in IISD-ELA lakes

Metadata

Chemistry

Many lakes in NW Ontario contain very low concentrations of dissolved gases and solids. IISD-ELA has been at the forefront of pioneering methods to detect very low levels of chemical parameters of interest.

Algae Ecology

The algae ecology lab focusing on studying interactions between algae and the environment. Many of our study receive very little inflow from streams which directly affects nutrient concentrations in the lakes.
