Scientists from Flathead Lake Biological Station and USGS visit the Sperry Glacier basin to sample lakes that are less than 75 years old in the wake of the retreating glacier. Samples will tell the story of what a lake is like when it first emerges, a sort of geographical "time machine" to the end of the Pleistocene when most of the world's glacial lakes were formed.
