USGS Leads Tour of Upper Klamath Basin
USGS hydrologist Liam Schenk presents to fishery bioloigsts about water-quality conditions in Upper Klamath Basin.
Liam Schenk, USGS hydrologist, will present about Upper Klamath Basin water quality to a group of salmon reintroduction biologists from the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) on June 4. The group will tour different parts of the upper basin and discuss collaborative opportunities. Included in the tour will be Clayton Creager (North Coast Regional Water Quality Board) and Jacob Kann (Aquatic Ecosystems Sciences, LLC), consulting scientist for the Klamath Tribes.
In 1992, the USGS began studying possible causes for the change in trophic status of Upper Klamath Lake. Since then research has expanded to include groundwater, geomorphology, streamflow forecasting, and fish ecology.
