In collaboration with NAAEE, Duke University is highlighting recent research on relevant topics to help EE practitioners learn from academic literature and create meaningful and engaging environmental education experiences for all students. Each month, we will pull together information from eeRESEARCH summaries about topics such as watershed education, climate change, conservation, and more.

How does lake temperature change with depth—or does it? Families from Maury River MS (Lexington, VA) adapted aquatic thermometers to gauge temperature of lake water up to 50 feet deep. June data (gathered by CCLC students from MRMS) suggested temperature declined with depth, but the October family crews found constant temperature throughout the lake column—and enjoyed lively discussions about those findings.
