Along with University of Wyoming colleagues Bryan Shuman, Brandon McElroy, David Williams, and Andrew Parsekian, Dr. Legleiter received a grant from the Wyoming Center for Excellence in Hydrogeophsics (WyCEHG) to conduct research in the nearby Snowy Range. The project, titled Tracking Water Balance, Snowmelt, and Surface-Groundwater Interactions in Sub-Alpine Lakes, will involve acquiring WorldView-2 satellite images and using these data to map lake bathymetry and substrate composition. A smaller, related grant from the Roy G. Shlemon Center for Quaternary Studies will support this project as well. These awards will allow us to add a new graduate student to our research group, focused on lakes in the Snowy Range. Here's a map showing four of the lakes to be targeted, with field measurements of depth from a pilot study on Brooklyn Lake.
