Hi, this is a reminder about the subject session at IAGLR99 in
Cleveland on May 25-29 at Case Western Reserve University. We hope you
will consider contributing a paper. Here is the information:

> Title:
>
> Great Lakes Modeling Summit: Focus on Lake Erie
>
> Description:
>
> In its effort to educate the Great Lakes community on the value of
> models, identify the state of
> Great Lakes models and gaps in our understanding of their application,
> and make
> recommendations for closing those gaps, the IJC Council of Great Lakes
> Research Managers is
> planning to hold one of its series of Great Lakes Modeling Summits at
> IAGLR '99.  Because of
> the location of the conference and the great complexities involved in
> understanding and
> managing the Lake Erie ecosystem, we plan to focus this session on
> reviewing the state of Lake
> Erie models and their application in addressing the full range of
> management issues in the lake.
> We, therefore, invite abstract submissions that cover the development,
> application, and/or state-
> of-the-science of whole system or component models for any aspect of
> the Lake Erie ecosystem.
> Modeling papers focusing on topics in any of the following areas are
> welcome: hydrodynamics
> and physical transport, sediment transport, nutrient cycling and
> trophic transfer, exotic species
> ecological interactions, toxic substance mass balance and
> bioaccumulation, multi-media and
> multi-stressor ecosystem response models, and modeling theory.  Time
> will be available at the
> end of this session for a plenary discussion to assess the state of
> modeling in Lake Erie and to
> make recommendations for future research to advance Lake Erie modeling
> capabilities.
