NCCOS Research Highlighted at International Association for Great Lakes Research Conference
On June 2-6, NCCOS led several sessions at this year’s International Association for Great Lakes Research annual conference at Purdue University. Our Great Lakes research addresses critical ecosystem and watershed-scale issues in the region such as invasive species, nutrient management hypoxia and impacts of multiple stressors.
Sessions featuring NCCOS science included:
- Using Data and Models to Link Nutrient Loads to Eutrophication Impacts - Coastal Hypoxia Research Program’s project in Green Bay (Lake Michigan)
- Physical Processes as Drivers of Population, Community, and Ecosystem Structure, Function, and Dynamics in Large Lake Ecosystems - Hypoxia ecological forecasting project (Lake Erie)
- Tools for Predicting and Managing Current and Future Invasions of Potentially Harmful Species in the Great Lakes and Developing and Implementing Risk Assessment for Invasive Species - Great Lakes-wide regional ecosystem invasive species bio-economic forecasting project
- The Impacts of Environmental Stressors on the Saginaw Bay Ecosystem - Multiple stressors research project in Saginaw Bay (Lake Huron)
