Collecting Sediment Cores from Otsego Lake, NY

This weekend we joined colleagues from SUNY Oneonta to collect sediment cores from Otsego Lake in upstate New York. Together with Dr. Les Hasbargen and his students we spent a day on the ice and collected over 20 meters of cores from two sites. The samples will be analyzed by Trinity students who will attempt to reconstruct the environmental history of the region. The video shows a brief summary of our expedition.
