This is a subalpine lake in the Green Lakes Valley, where along with the lead technician, Kelly Loria, they monitor water quality along a chain of Lakes that contribute 40% of Boulder's water supply. These lakes are a part of Niwot Ridge Long Term Ecological Research Program, which has been monitoring these environments for over the last 30 years to assess how a warming climate and increased nutrient deposition are changing alpine environments.
