FLBS Public Data Portal

FLBS has collected data on Flathead Lake since the early 1900s. While sampling locations and frequency have varied over the years based on available funding, ongoing sampling makes this one of the oldest, contiguous datasets on a large freshwater lake in the world. This dataset is used daily by scientists at FLBS, and many of our scientific questions and explorations begin here.
