Final Report [pdf]
Please contact Dr. Alan Heyvaert with questions regarding the report.
Water clarity in Lake Tahoe has been declining for several decades. Much of this clarity loss has been caused by increased input and accumulation of fine particulates (<16 Ám in diameter) in the lake. Therefore, accurate methods for analysis of fine particle concentrations and particle size distributions in water samples from the lake, streams, and urban runoff are of major importance.
The main goal of this project was to assemble and analyze available data on particle size characterization reported for samples from Lake Tahoe, from Tahoe Basin streams, and from Tahoe-area urban runoff.
Additional objectives included:
