Springtime in Lake Geneva

Warming up and restarting of aquatic life

From spring onwards, the CIPEL's monitoring programme will become fortnightly again in order to follow the warming and the resumption of the development of phytoplankton on the surface of the lake. Phytoplankton is the plant plankton that develops each year in the form of microalgae suspended in the lake waters.
