Changing Great Lakes Water Levels and Local Impacts

On May 17, 2016, multidisciplinary experts from the U.S. and Canada came together to share information with interested stakeholders about Great Lakes water level variability, adaptation, and the first phase of the Great Lakes Water Levels Integrated Assessment  - an examination of the status, trends, causes, and consequences of changing water levels as they relate to the key issues facing specific shoreline localities.
The event was held at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, Michigan with support from the Graham Institute, University of Michigan Water Center, Michigan Coastal Zone Management Program, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
