Lake Tahoe — A stunning sunrise over Emerald Bay on the western side of Lake Tahoe, California. The USGS conducts a wide range of science in Lake Tahoe including water quality monitoring, streamgaging, bathymetry, aerial LiDAR, historic use of aerial photography, and more. This wide range of consistent, reliable, long-term data and maps are crucial for evaluating and maintaining the lake and basin. USGS researchers are working to rapidly deliver the best science possible in the on-going effort to protect, preserve and restore the spectacular national treasure, Lake Tahoe.
