Brief description of dataset location This data was collected at Upper Joker Lakes in Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park, B.C. The lake sits at 2013 masl and is situated in the Engelmann Spruce- Subalpine fir (ESSF) biogeoclimatic zone. It is fed by snow and glacier melt, and fish species are present - Likely cutthroat trout, however, fish species was not determined. There are stocking records available on the B.C water body query webpage. Upper Joker Lake is dark green in colour, and Lower Joker Lake, which sits slightly below and is less than 1km away, is bright turquoise. Lower Joker receives more runoff from Kokanee glacier, hence the colour difference.
