Visit to the LéXPLORE floating laboratory (Pully) 11:30 a.m.

Lakes are fascinating ecosystems and important natural resources for drinking water, fishing, recreation and tourism. However, lakes are extremely sensitive to changes in climate and land use, as well as to various sources of pollutants. To study and predict these changes, we have set up the most advanced experimental station ever installed on a lake.

Since February 2019, the LéXPLORE platform has been anchored on Lake Geneva near Pully. This platform is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation to simultaneously measure physical, chemical and biological processes at high temporal and spatial resolutions. This unique data set will enable us to model key processes in the lake, in order to predict the lake's evolution and the impacts of environmental change.

This visit can be combined with a family outing, where everyone can bring a picnic and their swimsuits to enjoy the nearby pool together.

Meet at the Port of Pully to take a small boat to the platform.
