Lake water quality data and satellites: Hubbard County COLA presenter will share the connection

Dr. Leif G. Olmanson, research associate for the University of Minnesota Department of Forest Resources, will explain how the water quality data collected by Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Association volunteers is used in combination with satellite data to extract lake water quality data for all lakes in Minnesota.

We are part of The Trust Project.

The public is invited to attend the Hubbard County Coalition of Lake Association’s (COLA) educational presentation at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 30 at Calvary Lutheran Church, Park Rapids.

Dr. Leif G. Olmanson, research associate for the University of Minnesota Department of Forest Resources, will explain how the water quality data collected by COLA volunteers is used in combination with satellite data to extract lake water quality data for all lakes in Minnesota. Plus specifically, what is available for Hubbard County lakes through the Minnesota LakeBrowser https://lakes.rs.umn.edu/ . This will help us be aware of opportunities that compliment our physical water monitoring conducted by volunteers on our lakes.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
