The alpine LAkes Observatory hosts research projects studying the processes (biological, physico-chemical, geochemical) that underlie the functioning and evolution of lake systems. The four large natural peri-alpine lakes (Annecy, Le Bourget, Aiguebelette and Lake Geneva) are at the centre of this observatory, which provides data on the state and ecological functioning of lake systems under anthropogenic and climatic pressures.
The platform provides scientists with a wide range of services, (in situ experimentation on ecosystems, instrumentation for long-term monitoring and in situ measurement of environmental parameters, devices and tools for collecting samples and data on the studied ecosystems), including floating mesocosms. These floating mesoscoms are made of unfoldable bags that allow in situ hypothesis tests to be carried out in a semi-controlled environment. They are located near the INRA station in Thonon on Lake Geneva or on other lakes with the authorization of the French DDT.
