Aquatic Research Laboratory (ARL)

Metadata Updated: March 8, 2017

Columbia River and groundwater well water sources are delivered to the Aquatic Research Laboratory (ARL), where these resources are used to conduct research on fish studies, tagging, prototype aquatic tool development, and modeling of biological systems. Capabilities include temperature and lighting controls to simulate seasonal and diurnal cycles. The laboratory also contains both indoor and outdoor facilities that are used for holding and acclimating test fish and supports specialized research equipment that can be installed and operated to meet specific research needs. Research includes effects of radiation on the Columbia River ecosystem; biological uptake, effects, and transport of contaminants; fish physiology and energetics in relation to water flow fields and shear/ turbulence; fish behavior in response to physical structure and flow; radio- and acoustic tag development and testing; egg and fry development in response to temperature and dissolved nitrogen gas; flow quantification and modeling; new generation hydroturbine design; and hyperbaric chamber testing to simulate turbine passage.
