Research at Lake Altaussee

Near Walter Munk’s boyhood home,
Lake Altaussee in Austria is a pristine Alpine environment.

Our research goal is to characterize the lake hydrography, geology and ecology.

Lake Altaussee will be a reference for change to this environment, and elsewhere.

World-renowned ocean explorer Walter Munk
initiated a comprehensive exploration of Lake Altaussee, Austria.
