Xiaodong Zhang, co-project leader, with the UND Department of Earth System Science and Policy, stands by the buoy that he and his colleagues were to launch Wednesday at Stump Lake. The buoy will measure and monitor changing conditions, water quality and other issues in the Devils Lake Basin as more water is moved from the Devils Lake to the Sheyenne River. It’s part of a $3 million NASA grant to the Northern Great Plains Center for People and the Environment at UND. The buoy was tested outside UND’s Clifford Hall before being taken to Stump Lake.
