  • Great Lakes have ocean issues…plus Governance Issues Source Water Physical issues Coal mine canary for climate change Binational and tribal management Drinking water quality protection Great Lakes compact (eight states, Ontario and Quebec) Physical issues Coal mine canary for climate change Affects shipping, coastal development, ecology Evidence that evaporation and levels effects are apparent now $15 million IJC levels study focusing on climate issues – why is Lake Huron low relative to Lake Erie? How to manage releases from Lake Superior if climate is changing?
  • Categorize: Identify User Needs for Data/Information and Tools Coordinate: response to user needs – identify entities with expertise to address identified needs, help find resources both through NOAA and external to it, to develop, test and implement tools Coordinate: the coordination is going to occur virtually, through the GLOS website, and through value-added opportunities such as workshops and conferences, Cooperate: make tools available on line Collaborate: GLOS purpose is to fill gaps, not challenge existing missions.
  • Systems grant projects, especially Huron to Erie modeling and HarborView Planning Grant Education and Outreach focus on needs assessment Nascent membership strategy to target stakeholders
  • The Great Lake Observing System is being designed with 11 key subsystem components listed on this slide.
  • Political context – funding for and role of science in policy – is daunting Scientists are from Saturn and resource managers from Earth
