Mark Jakubauskas, Kansas Biological Survey associate research professor, identifies the original bottom of Potter Lake by its compactness relative to additional sedimentation on a core sample removed from the lake.
Jerry deNoyelles, deputy director of the Kansas Biological Survey and a professor in the ecology and evolutionary biology department at Kansas University, disassembles a coring unit after taking a core sample from Potter Lake Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2009 at Potter Lake. Both Kansas Biological Survey officials and Kansas University faculty from both the ecology and evolutionary biology department and the environmental studies department worked to extract core samples from the lake to measure sedimentation.
