  • Ohio Sea Grant and Lake Erie Program (826)

    The Ohio Sea Grant College Program uses research, education, and outreach efforts to enhance use and improve management of this nation's ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes resources. Ohio Sea Grant College Program, a statewide program based at The Ohio State University, funds Education, Research, Extension, and Communication activities, in multiple disciplines, to enhance the use, development, and wise management of our Great Lakes and coastal resources. Two programs affiliated with Ohio Sea Grant are Franz Theodore Stone Laboratory and the Great Lakes Aquatic Ecosystem Research Consortium. Critical environmental and resource issues affecting the Great Lakes are addressed by faculty, staff, and students supported by the Ohio Sea Grant College Program. (11/12/2004)

  • Remote Sensing of Lake Water Quality (867)

    The Upper Great Lake States of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan are fortunate to have a large number of lakes (over 30,000 lakes >10 acres). Protecting and monitoring lake water quality is a major concern for many local and state agencies which have monitoring programs that measure physical, chemical and biological properties of the region's water resources. However, because of expense and time requirements for ground-based monitoring, it is impractical to monitor more than a small fraction of this large resource by conventional field methods. The use of remote, satellite-based sensing is a potentially cost-effective way to gather the information needed for regional water quality assessments in lake-rich areas. NASA Regional Earth Sciences Applications Center. Parrallel article,"Testing the Waters" is available from the NASA Earth Observatory. (3/13/2002)
