For those of you who don't get a hard copy, the latest issue of Minnesota Sea 
Grant's Seiche Newsletter is on the Web at  

                 http://www.d.umn.edu/seagr/seiche/march.98/

Articles include:

Reawakening a 'Sleeping Beauty' of a Gene

	A fish gene that stopped functioning millions of years ago now offers a way to 
correct flawed human DNA and promises to revolutionize the cutting-edge science 
of human gene therapy.

Superfund Site Still Causing Concern

	Minnesota Sea Grant was recently awarded $250,000 by the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency (EPA) to evaluate a contaminated groundwater site on the Leech
Lake Indian Reservation in north central Minnesota.  

Computer Model Predicts Lake Superior's Unique Moves

	Trying to predict how Lake Superior will react to a storm or other events has, 
up until now, been like trying to predict where a tornado will twist next.  Sea 
Grant researcher Philip Cheung has developed the first hydrodynamic computer 
model that can be used to predict Lake Superior's unique moves.  

Bag O' Lamprey

	Will chefs in Portugal and Spain accept frozen lamprey instead of live lamprey?
That's the question to be answered in a continuing study to determine the 
marketability of Great Lakes lamprey.  

Clearly Superior

	Five years of volunteer efforts through the Lakewatch Program to measure Lake 
Superior's water clarity show it is remarkably clear.

The Seiche Earns International Award

	The Seiche newsletter earned second place as the "most improved periodical"  
from the National Association of Government Communicators (NAGC) this past fall.

And information on staff activities and new products/services.
