Swiss lakes: New stations monitor water temperature in real time

14.11.2022 - This summer, the FOEN launched a pilot project to record the water temperature of individual lakes using automatic data buoys. This data is freely available to everyone. As part of this project, experts will also assess the feasibility of extending temperature monitoring to other lakes. Knowing about changes in lake temperatures is crucial to better understanding the lake ecosystem. It also makes it possible to monitor the effects of climate change.
