Andrew Barr says : “If you take a glass of water and look at it, there’s not much going on,” “On the other hand, if you take large fluid bodies like oceans you have tidal effects, wind, you can have big storms, then of course, there’s all the biological activity.

Andrew Barr explains : “When the Rhône comes into the lake it brings sediment and also normally cooler temperature,” “So it's more dense water. The water can plunge, it can dive. If the water is dense enough it'll go down to the bottom, where there's a steep slope. This water can travel on the bottom almost to the middle of the lake. It gouges out part of the bottom of the lake and you can see the marks in the lakebed morphology where this happens” External link

Andrew Barr explains : “It's a very deep lake, which gives rise to a very rich hydrodynamic system,” “That's why as an outdoor laboratory, it has the intricate motions and complexity which make it a very interesting and challenging scientific body of water to study. And because of this size, a lot of what we find here in terms of understanding of the lake can apply to other lake systems” External link

Andrew Barr explains : “With thermal imagery we can get the temperature of the lake water and then use that in our calculations of the surface energy exchange, which over time has a major influence on the lake’s energy balance,” “And there's a considerable variation in temperature.

Andrew Barr explains : “When the Rhône comes into the lake it brings sediment and also normally cooler temperature,” “So it's more dense water. The water can plunge, it can dive. If the water is dense enough it'll go down to the bottom, where there's a steep slope. This water can travel on the bottom almost to the middle of the lake. It gouges out part of the bottom of the lake and you can see the marks in the lakebed morphology where this happens” External link
