Wellesley Marks World Water Day with Research

This summer, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences Marianne Moore and a team of researchers that includes Katie Wright '12 (biological sciences), will travel to the world's oldest and largest freshwater lake, Russia's Lake Baikal, to continue studying how the lake will adapt to climate change and to quantify the lake's biodiversity.

Nicole Uhrain '12 (Russian), shown in the photo collecting a sample from Lake Baikal, serves as translator for the team. Moore and her research team have worked closely with Russian counterparts in past studies of the lake. Learn more about a recent Baikal experiment.

A photo highlight of their work appeared in a Washington Post Gallery celebrating World Water Day.
