‘Hyperalarming’ study shows massive insect lossOctober 15, 2018 -
Insects around the world are in a crisis, according to a small but growing number of long-term studies showing dramatic declines in invertebrate populations.

'The Jefferson Project' aims to solve water problem in SyracuseAugust 28, 2018 -
In 2013, the FUND for Lake George came together with IBM and RPI to create a sophisticated network of sensors designed to keep what Thomas Jefferson dubbed as the most beautiful water he ever saw, well, beautiful.
“The Jefferson Project is really a springboard to the future as to what we need to understand about this lake in order to protect it," said Eric Siy, FUND executive director.
The project tests the lake’s water quality using over 50 platforms and more than 500 sensors.
“We’re collecting thousands of data points every day," said Rick Relyea, RPI director.
Skaneateles Lake gets help in fighting toxic algae -- from a robotAugust 28, 2018 -
A robotic buoy bristling with scientific instruments has joined the fight against toxic algae in Skaneateles Lake. Scientists from IBM and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute installed the buoy, called a vertical profiler, on July 30. The algae quickly cooperated: A bloom that closed beaches and infiltrated water intake pipes started Aug. 4.
