Aquatic Plant Survey Cruises - Take One!


In honor of Ithaca's Water Week celebration on May 9, we took three cruises onto Cayuga Lake, culminating in the first deployment of Cornell's student-designed remote-operation mini-sub, Triton (Pictured at right), from the M/V Haendel!
This was the first of three opportunities this seasaon to record on video the plant community growing from the bottom of the lake. We'll add new images soon from this exciting event... so check back in a week!
