Abstract:
This dataset contains bathymetric points for Upper Saranac Lake. Locations and depth data were collected for 471 points when the lake had ice cover during March of 1996 and February of 1997.
Purpose:
This dataset was produced for an EPA funded report titled "The State of Upper Saranac Lake". These bathymetric points were used to calculate lake volumes and to generate a preliminary bathymetric contour map of the lake.
Supplemental_Information:
Locations were determined with GPS units and depth soundings were taken with metered tapes. A total of 471 points were collected for this preliminary map. Additional points are needed to accurately depict the lake bathymetry. Scale:
