Dry lake provides new questions for scientists

Posted: Jul 29, 2010 | 1 min 33 sec

Since Tempe Town Lake first opened in 1999 in what used to be a dry river bed, the ASU community has played a key role in its evolution.

Many ASU researchers, including those participating in the Central Arizona-Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research project (CAPLTER), have studied the impact of placing a large body of water in the middle of an arid, urban community.

Now after one of the lake’s inflatable dams burst July 20 and drained an estimated 750 million gallons of water from the lake, ASU scientists have new opportunities for research. Nancy Grimm, the principal investigator for CAPLTER, says key scientific questions surrounding sediment, ecological systems and lake management can be considered in a new light.
