Middlebury College, in conjunction with NOAA’s Great Lakes Research Lab, has placed a series of current meter moorings and temperature recorders at several locations in Shelburneburne Bay and Burlington Bay. The current meter moorings are located approximately 10 feet below the surface at a lake level of 94.0 feet. The temperature recorders are small (3/4″ x 4″) devices and are located on existing anchors of boat moorings or navigation markers. If you find one that has broken free, please contact Dr. Tom Manley at 802 443 5000, ext 3114.
The latitude/longitude of the current meter moorings is as follows:
Shelburne Bay mouth
N.E. of Nun 4 – 44 26.428N
Shelburne Bay – adjacent CWD intake
Shelburne Bay – mid/east
Shelburne Bay – east of LCYC
The moorings will be in place until early fall, 2000. Anglers are requested to give these locations a wide berth to avoid snagging gear in the mooring array. The locations are by DGPS and thus should be accurate to within 10 meters.
For furthur information, people may contact Dr. Tom Manley at the number above, or Dick Furbush, Captain- Melosira, at 656 2696.
