The Harp Environmental Lake Monitoring Ark (aka THELMA)
The Harp Environmental Lake Monitoring Ark (aka THELMA for short) was deployed in the summer of 2010 to gather high resolution water quality and meteorology data for investigations of lake metabolism, climate change, and water, nutrient, and energy budgets (among other things) on Harp Lake. The most recent data (averages for the last hour) are available in the table below and the last month of hourly data are available in the plots below. We thank the Harp Lake Association for their input into THELMA's design and for their support over this first year of operation. Please note that these data are provided "as is" as we have not yet verified their accuracy.
