  • 1. Accountability,Education, Monitoring,Evaluation, Communication and Partnerships funded by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative The principles of the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative stress accountability, action and urgency. Through this focus area of work, NOAA is contributing the use of best available science to assist in making progress toward to the objectives of the initiative. The projects in this focus area are vitally important to providing resources and the scientific data necessary to sustain this investment in Great Lakes restoration. NOAA is moving forward with a coordinated network of scientific observations, information for decision makers about the impacts climate change, and the implementation of adaptive management through the Lakewide Management Plan process.Implementing a Great Enhancing Climate ChangeLakes Observing System Information and CreatingThe Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS) is one of Resilient Communities11 Regional Associations across the U.S. responsible The goal of addressing climate adaptation andfor partnering with the NOAA Integrated Ocean mitigation is important to NOAA and it is working toObserving System in the coordination of regional create an informed society that is anticipating andobserving systems. GLOS is using GLRI funds to responding to climate change and its impacts. NOAA’ssupport instruments for collecting data, standardizing efforts in the Great Lakes focus on the collection ofand integrating the data collected with additional data baseline climate data, increasing the understandingfrom regional partners, and developing models and of climate change impacts, and the customization ofvisualization programs that will help decision makers adaptation strategies within the Great Lakes communityacross the Great Lakes interpret and understand the to enable informed adaptation decisions throughout thedata. By collecting and bringing data together in a basin.way that ensures the information can be used withother data sets, GLOS will make a broader suite of This includes:data available to scientists, resource managers and • the creation of an inventory of existing elevationdecision makers with the goal of creating a system to data above and below water at the coast line and filling in critical gaps of information along the coastenable better informed decisions about how to best of Lake Superiormanage the Great Lakes. • the extension of existing regional climate models,Coordinating creating a larger set of possible climatic outcomes,Implementation of Lakewide and broadening current models to include three dimensional visualization and ice cover; andManagement Plans • providing information and management tools toThe GLRI is providing support for an enhanced process coastal communities to help them develop plans toof developing and implementing Lakewide Management adapt to the impacts of climate change.Plans for each of the five lakes.
