An underwater glider for measuring turbulence in Lake Geneva
An underwater glider for measuring turbulence in Lake Geneva
Huge systems of rotating water masses - called gyres - form in oceans and large lakes. Two EPFL laboratories, working with the University of California, Davis, are using an underwater glider to explore one such gyre in Lake Geneva and learn more about how it affects the three-dimensional structure of the aquatic ecosystem.
