Lake Social Ecological Systems Lab (LaSES)
LaSES Lab is a world-class lake system research facility at UI Coeur d'Alene that addresses the pressing social and ecological questions confronting lakes in north Idaho, the region and beyond.
Headed by IWRRI associate director Mark Solomon and research director Frank Wilhelm, professor in the Department of Fish and Wildlife Sciences in UI College of Natural Resources, the LaSES Lab is designed to conduct research into the function of lake biophysical systems and the relationship of lake function to the communities that use and benefit from lakes.
LaSES community supporters include the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality. LaSES works closely with UI Coeur d’Alene, the College of Natural Resources and the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences.
