Kelowna author Raphael Nowak will be here to sign copies of his comprehensive new book Okanagan Lake - an Illustrated Exploration Above and Below the Waters (Institute for Underwater Exploration).
What exists at the bottom of the lake? How did the lake get here? What physical geological, and biological processes are at play in the lake? How are humans impacting this resource? These questions answered as well as a detailed history of the lake.
Raphael Nowak is a Freshwater Science graduate from the University of British Columbia Okanagan (UBCO), and has passionately researched the science and history of Okanagan Lake from a very young age. In 2005, driven by a strong intellectual curiosity, Raphael founded the Institute for Underwater Research, a private underwater research organization. While Okanagan Lake is such an important freshwater resource, very little information is readily available in one comprehensive text; the desire to fill this information gap is what led to the creation of this book.
