Researchers from NASA, the Canadian Space Agency and several universities converged on Kelly Lake, British Columbia, in July 2011 to study carbonate structures, known as "microbialites," present on the lake bed. The group is exploring the lake with scuba divers and one-person submersibles. In this image, the barge from which the subs are launched, along with the two "chase" boats that track the subs' underwater movements, can be seen moving into position in preparation for launching the subs. In previous years, the group has explored another nearby lake, Pavilion Lake, which also contains microbialites. More information on the Pavilion Lake Research Project is available at www.pavilionlake.com Will open in a new tab or window. Thanks to Mike Pryor of Clinton, BC, for guiding me up the mountain on the east side of the lake to the vantage point from which this panorama was taken.
