Yellowstone Lake is a national treasure – a beautiful alpine lake set amidst the spectacular scenery of Yellowstone National Park, with an abundance of natural bays and arms tucked into the surrounding mountains. Millions of visitors enjoy the lake’s natural beauty each year, but few would guess that beneath the lake’s sparkling surface lies one of the most active and powerful thermal areas in Yellowstone. From 2016-2018, the HD-YLAKE project used some of the world’s most advanced marine robotics technology to study the lake floor thermal areas, making a number of stunning discoveries along the way. Chris Linder joined the expedition in the field to photographically chronicle the efforts of the scientists and engineers as they worked to uncover the lake’s secrets. Rob Sohn, the lead investigator for the HD-YLAKE project, joins Chris to talk about the project and what the scientists have learned about What Lies Beneath Yellowstone Lake.
