Lake Social Ecological Systems Lab (LaSES)
The Idaho Water Resources Research Institute conducts and directs research out of the Lake Social Ecological Systems laboratory on the campus of the University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene. The LaSES laboratory is a research facility where students, staff and faculty can address pressing water resource issues germane to Lake Coeur d’Alene, North Idaho and northeastern Washington.
The LaSES laboratory exists within a tightly knit network of community support, including partners from the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, the Community Water Resource Center, and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality. The LaSES laboratory also works closely with the University of Idaho’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, College of Engineering, College of Natural Resources, and the College of Science.
