Stone Lab Buoy Measures Water Quality at Put-in-Bay

Click for live data!

Stone Lab buoy has a live data feed to monitor water quality in Lake Erie.  Environmental researchers rely on the Algal & Water Quality Lab to identify plankton, measure chlorophyll content and cyanobacteria toxins, analyze organic and inorganic suspended solids, and test for nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen.

A buoy, donated by Fondriest Environmental and upgraded with additional equipment through grant funding, helps Stone Lab staff monitor water conditions in Lake Erie’s western basin.
