The Upstate Freshwater Institute and its staff have been conducting research on Onondaga lake for more than twenty-five years. This work has resulted in the publication of a book summarizing studies conducted on Onondaga Lake. Additionally, UFI has prepared over 120 manuscripts on Onondaga Lake and the Three Rivers System for publication in peer-reviewed science and engineering journals (including a journal issue devoted entirely to Onondaga Lake). UFI has an on-going comprehensive monitoring program for the lake, its tributaries and adjoining portions of the Seneca River. In 1999, UFI developed and sponsored the Annual Onondaga Lake Scientific Forum along with co-sponsors: SUNY-College of Environmental Science and Forestry and Syracuse University, L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science.
