Lake Tahoe Clarity Model


The Tahoe Science Advisory Council (Council) reviewed the status of Lake Tahoe Clarity model. Report findings include:

1) The identification of the strengths and deficiencies of the existing Lake Clarity components/sub models.

2) A summary of the availability of model inputs (data sources) – e.g. meteorology, water

inflows, loads, distributed load sources, remote sensing, and in-lake data, including optical

conditions, temperature, chemistry, currents, particles, phytoplankton.

3) The valuation of existing or recommended linkages to external models and reporting mechanisms.

4) Recommendations for next steps.
