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:

  1. Using Data and Models to Link Nutrient Loads to Eutrophication Impacts - Coastal Hypoxia Research Program’s project in Green Bay (Lake Michigan)
  2. Physical Processes as Drivers of Population, Community, and Ecosystem Structure, Function, and Dynamics in Large Lake Ecosystems - Hypoxia ecological forecasting project (Lake Erie)
  3. 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
  4.  The Impacts of Environmental Stressors on the Saginaw Bay Ecosystem - Multiple stressors research project in Saginaw Bay (Lake Huron)
