TERC launches Lake Conditions tool


UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center launched a new online Lake Conditions tool to provide real-time and projected information for water temperatures, wave heights and water currents. This directly links TERC’s measurement stations to a smartphone or computer and provides forecasts across the lake for up to three days. The models were developed by TERC researchers and have been used on lakes around the world.

Find information about wave heights, currents and wind conditions is essential for anyone boating, paddling, or even swimming for an extended time period. Track Tahoe’s occasional upwelling events that can make the surface water in certain areas far colder than expected, even on the hottest summer days. | tahoe.ucdavis.edu
