If you’re doing research on Lake Erie or its flora and fauna, Stone Laboratory’s setting in the Western Basin provides an ideal location for work throughout the year. Go out on the lake, hop nearby islands, or break it down in the lab — our equipment and facilities are available for your use.
Stone Lab’s Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Scholarship Program is a competetive comprehensive research internship that attracts students from across the country to learn how to conduct real, in-the-field research alongside top scientists.
As part of its commitment to the environment, Stone Lab leads by example in the use of solar power to create electricity and hot water for its operations.
Water Quality Lab
Allows researchers to identify plankton, measure chlorophyll content and cyanobacteria toxins, analyze organic and inorganic suspended solids, and test for nutrients such as phosphorus and nitrogen.
