The alpine LAkes Observatory includes a database gathering all data monitored on the lakes (phytoplankton, zooplankton, fish, physical chemistry, etc..). The collected data is the data obtained in situ such as probe sensors data providing lakes' depth profiles (pH, T °, turbidity, transparency, fluorescence, etc..) as well as the data from counting or analyses obtained from samples in the laboratory. The four alpine lakes which are monitored are Lake Geneva, Lake Annecy, Lake Bourget and Lake Aiguebelette. In addition, data acquired on 25 high-altitude lakes is also referenced in the OLA Information System.
