                                      On behalf of the Great Lakes Science
Vessel
                                      Coordination Steering Committee, we
are pleased
                                      to invite you to the Third Annual
Great Lakes
                                      Science Vessel Coordination Workshop, to
                                      be held February 17-18, 1999 at the
Great Lakes
                                      Institute for Environmental Research,
University of
                                      Windsor in Windsor, Ontario. 

                                      Over the past two years, U.S. and
Canadian
                                      scientists, research managers and
vessel operators
                                      have found the workshop to be a
valuable forum
                                      for discussing the coordination needs
of their
                                      vessel management and operations
activities.
                                      Through facilitated small group
discussion,
                                      attendees have crafted and refined an
Action Plan
                                      to promote - through enhanced
communication
                                      and cooperation - the more efficient
and cost
                                      effective use of the Great Lakes
Science Vessel
                                      resources. Among other products, a
                                      comprehensive descriptive inventory
of the Great
                                      Lakes Science Vessel fleet has been
completed
                                      and work has begun on a related
website. 

                                      The Third Annual Great Lakes Science
Vessel
                                      Workshop will again bring together
the science,
                                      management and operations
professionals to
                                      discuss important science vessel
coordination
                                      issues and to gauge progress on
implementing
                                      recommendations from the Action Plan.
The focus
                                      will be on practical and pragmatic
measures for
                                      enhanced coordination and
cooperation. For
                                      example, how can we better
communicate and

                                      share equipment and other resources
to maximize
                                      capability and what is the optimal
institutional
                                      arrangement that will enhance
operational
                                      efficiency of the Great Lakes science
vessel fleet?
                                      These and other questions will be
addressed on a
                                      lake-by-lake and system-wide basis. 

                                      Please mark your calendar for the
February
                                      17-18, 1999 workshop; and complete
